imagine me
a stranger

I consider myself to be a stranger everywhere.
-Albert Einstein

imagine the wave

center it
………..in a spherical lake

standing
………..in free space

waves of electrons
………..collide

………..with paper swans

ripple
………..to the outer edge
…………………..of time

how could I ever tell you

I want to be a woman

I want
………..to be a swan

rose print paper
petals scattered

some
………..on fire

I want to fold myself

………………….into myself
