Relate (Dialogue)

A flat planet in the centre of the universe
Who punctured us
Who thrust the needle into our flesh
Geocentrism came crawling back
licking the needle marks
Copernicus was never right
and our world turned as
introvert as our minds

Kepler Copernicus & Galilei
suffocating in the vacuum ofthe microcosms
The inside can wait
as long as we’re preoccupied with shining the facade

We brought this upon ourselves
the connection breach
We cut the rope
we shut the power down.
The line does not reach out any more
Diagonal traded for horizontal
there is no up and down
Gathered trapped closed into a linear thought

Kepler Copernicus & Galilei
suffocating in the vacuum of the microcosms.
The inside can wait
as long as we’re preoccupied with shining the facade

Somehow we lost the ancient connection
All perspective eaten by newborn abilities
Entangled no more
Simplicity the order of absent relations
Complexity a distant relative or a strange rumour

Reflective surfaces mirroring skin
cores diminish slowly and silently
Nourishment torn away
light dimmed to the unrecognizable
Show us your universe and we’ll give you our world
we do not recognize it anyway
