Reverse

I take a picture in reverse
in place of the real reality
it turns to infinite regress
back thirteen billion years
to a point of light before
it was called light of course
before there were words
used by humans or gods
proving for once and all
in the beginning was a non
sequitur it didn’t really go
down in such an unfashioned
it was much more humble
and quiet you would hardly
notice in fact it made no sound
unlike the anachronism
enacted by our breaths
in mobile pendulum stream
believe me if you were there
you wouldn’t believe your eyes
not that there were eyes
then or beginnings or ends
just a solid sign sighing
and yes I said yes I will Yes
