Bee in Jar


You cannot help knowing, said Tolstoy.
The world is a distance to go.
Remember, once you were good for nothing
and you didnít know it.

Cedar branches live a little while on the fire.
Some young swallows
cover some sea then
turn back on their first migration.

Only matter can
be transformed.
Transformed into matter.
Things that are not matter
cannot be transformed.

The key is cut by the lock.
You will code then decode your mind.
You will save yourself.
You cannot help it.
