Thumbprint


Black stained thumb
engraved with mountain ridges
ancient as a mother tongue,
its imprint on a mini Post-it, grainy
like an ultrasound baby photo.

We keep trying to capture
the intangible, the fathomless, but
the music of the universe always
comes out vague as TV static.

I don't think I really get this one. It's pretty though. :)
