Random Poem:

And what is behind me?

In front of me there's everything.
I see it all laid out like a smorgasboard.
All, because outside my vision is nothing.
All, because I see it squirming in the tension.
Like the space between two magnets.
Like the space between my eyes.
Like the synapses of my brain.
All is here. All, because it is here.
All, because I see it.
