My Place in the UniverseMartha Silano
I think I am here to stare carefully at maps, then get lost at least fifty times a year. I think I am here to be suddenly made aware of the loudness of a ticking clock, also to witness, in unexpected places, glitter, to hear a lady in heels walking down a hall. The universe and I, we are both expanding our knowledge of what’s just beyond us. Me-n-the universe really not separate after all, me surely not a subset. Me, the chairs, all the couches, every soda can, every book and eyelash, all together making a music no one can hear on account of the humming exhaust fans, on account of the humming lights.
