Matters

August 30, 2012

by Hannah Stephenson

As in, material.
Plural.

Enigmatic content
of brains,

unlit outer space.
As in,

this is significant,
weighty.

Sudden certainty,
meaning

placed, pointed to.
As in,

to be taken into one’s
own hands,

owned, held within
my grasp,

a cupped moth still
flying.
