de-centering

when i am not the centre
then the universe resonates with me
the order of the stars
finds an order in my heart
the silence of the stars
echoes in my silence

when i am the centre
there is no universe
there is only this world
to conquer
to possess
to have under my keel
then, i live in a city
and race, with a million city-dwellers

when i have no centre
i live in the universe
inhabitant of its expanses
traveller of it realms
harmonious
with the symphonies
of stars and planets
terrified at its terror
still with its stillness
infinite, as it is
always being born, as it is
beyond death, as it is
