One Similar Second - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

does the face
of every born child
in a similar second
vary because of
the minute space
each occupies
in the similar second?

does their life differ
because of the space
each of which carries
a different sun, moon,
and planet?

how much can a
second accommodate
in the creation of a planet?
two stones, a river, a mountain?
a single breath of god?
you find the answer in the faces
of all the children born in one
similar second
