Every child knows
not to step on the cracks
in the pavement;
it is the knowledge
we are born with.

But, slipping through,
I inhabit those angles of space
that project as tangents between;
those lines - my home -
the only place I dwell content.

They are subterranean pathways;
cosmic highways to
an ever-expanding universe.

Life is a matter of time and reality:
quality of moment versus quantity.

A geometric algebraic formulation
laid down on the streets,
written in the stars
and encrypted in the rhythm
of a heartbeat.

Life versus existence
is reality divided by time.
