.perspectively infinite.

– I hold my opinion loosely –

loosely in my hands and wait –

wait and watch for the truth –

the truth to filter through my fingers and fall –

fall to the ground,

where it can be kicked up and stirred –

stirred to settle; to settle into a foundation –

foundation worthy to be built upon.


just as I begin to dream –

to dream of a grand building,

I see a crack –

crack in the foundation.

I fall to my knees –

not in despair, but hope!

I look into the crack;

it takes time for my eyes to adjust to the new perspective…

and I see.

I see a vastness of particles –

particles of truth.

I focus all of who I am on just one particle –

knowing, with my new eyes; knowing – that this particle of truth,

is but a tiny aspect of the whole –

whole far greater than my comprehension.

Such is why,

 I hold my opinion loosely –



Shifting Shifts Shift

Perspective is to stand in one position and view –

the whole is not in play; it is not possible for us.

I move position within myself – my perspective changes; my view alters, but still I am unable to comprehend the whole.

I apply previously formed filters to my point of view; attempting to force-feed my mind.

My comprehension rests upon me like a vapor, stirringly unsettled as I attempt to grasp.

Being human.


It sucks

Emotional pain ignored

becomes water-borne perception –

syphoned later by atmospheric pressure

with inverted, unequal legs.


Repulsion In Red

Art work: Kelly Hartland 2009

The man

fearing his own heart

and tormented by the whispers there-in

became belligerent towards himself, then – others.

Eventually, perceiving treason within,

he murdered his own conscience.

Thanks to technological advances,

we now have more time to use technology.
