3 Steps to ' specks' '


1.
The Speck
...........thought bubbles expand
universally unable to burst
continually rebreathed by
the speck
from which thought bubbles expand
universally unable to burst
continually rebreathed by
the speck
from which thought bubbles expand
bursting into the cosmos vast,
into the beyond-metaphorical-expression,
free from the speck at last.

2.
the speck
...........Thought bubbles expand
universally unable to burst
continually rebreathed by
the speck
from which Thought bubbles expand
universally unable to burst
and so on
until
bursting into the Cosmos at last,
into the Beyond-Metaphorical-Expression,
Thought is free from the speck,
and vast.

3.
specks'
bubbles of Thoughts expand contract
universe unable to burst
bursting into Cosmos at last
Beyond-Metaphorical-Expression
Thoughts free from specks and vast
