linger too long and you pass through seeing

into seeing something new
or becoming completely distracted

and daydreaming yourself off a cliff

like when you find yourself staring
at someone on the bus

only you were looking through them
into another region
but they don't know that and move

very abruptly from your
field of vision

i fail to see when i linger too long on something

glimpses are often better than
long, drawn out gaping

(unless you are in love
in which case every atom
unleashes universes)

it is good to breathe something in
but not until you forget it

try glimpsing at things
and then try spending one single day

taking nothing
for granted
