Snapshot of Space

If we understand people it is about moving walls and making doors, not tearing them down.
~Michael Schepers
through a wall of fur he finds wiggle room
and purrs at teat


It is possible to walk through a mob and there is always a space for one more towel on the crowded beach.

This is the world of walls and the physics of space and we know less of it than the Milky Way. In walking through a riot the wise person will instinctively know the path between two runts and around the back of the bears. There will be in them the timing of sway and trajectory, a marking of holes and niches. Compass roses in these people point Through, not With, Against or Flee and they stick to course.


giggles and laughter
they have walked through walls
a family gathers
