i want to experience immortality

bell

i want to experience immortality
by understanding now
now does not begin or end
it simply is, eternal—
with a piece of wood
i trace a ring around
the lip of a seven-metal bell
and listen to the song of infinity
forever
just as the creator of all things
is caught up in a frame
of Richard Diamond, Detective
pondering the legs
of Sam
