The Distance



Once I've imagined there,
the distance from here to there
becomes unbearable.

The microseparations
of us from the rest,
the microdeviations
of us from the actual.

Too-many-metaphors,
while entertaining,
introduces too much distance
between the thing
and the thing said about the thing.

I did what I set out to do.
Which was to set out.
