refutation of a shallow instant

Poem #20 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.

Back to Bachelard and me – Introduction


nothing can happen
in an instant

it is too short
for time
too
instantaneous
and it can have
no depth

wait …

what
just happened?

when?
how long
did that take?

no time
at all
