Easier


no gravity, no friction
to push against
me or pull me farther than I want to go

here it's effortless

to build
marble palaces, steel truss bridges, rotting stocks.
I graffiti my own walls.
the materials are everywhere
it's easier here

and new become old
becomes new, recycled in an equation—
nothing lost

here's a whole world built
and being built
and I am its


god to a world without people;
why wait for them to fall?

it happens to the naïve:
people come, people see
what is real
is what they see

and sometimes people break
the ugly dilapidated obsolete wasteful obscene
carcasses of a world already
conquered.

I'm not naïve.


I'm not a hermit, either. I let some in

to some places sometimes:
they come to admire the scenery,
but they're here to see and think
reality; a technicality is enough.
here's a whole world

built
and being built
for no eyes to see and no hand to touch—
it's easier and
safer and

the building is just enough.
