A Fraction Of The Mental Sphere - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

dawdle a line over white
a meteor has shuttled
through space,
a fraction of the white

the distance the time
it travels from your mind
to the piece of white

two inches in one's mental sphere
equal two million miles in space

space steals its way from mental sphere
the way you chart the line in white,
that catches only a fraction of the mind

put space and mind side by side
the latter would convulse as it
charts its own boundlessness
beyond the former
