Sharon Venezio
The Middle of Things

the significance of a bird
flying over a continent
depends upon
the position of the sun
and the angle of the camera.

a person travels west
to California.  eight years later
another person travels west
to California.  the space between
them depends upon a third event.

the trajectory of a body
through time depends upon
the first event.
the space between
depends upon the outcome.

she was circumstance.
a particle along a curved space.
the horizon forms
around her voice.
could be a remembering.
something that was alive
years ago.

a wing-like movement
pushes her away.  open space
edged with petal-like sound,
something she did not know before.

the significance of a bird
depends upon
the position of the sun
and the angle of the camera.
