enough 

by Matthew Yates 

 

 

it might be enough –

at the corners of the sky

 

where the simulation’s seams

start to show   where if one watched

 

long enough they could see a vee

of geese disappear into code

 

& slip into the ether   where on

a rainy day you can see the tempest

 

buffer & if you throw yourself into

the right wind at the right time

 

you might sail into disintegration –

it might be enough

 

to be a simulated thing,

for life to be a sky

 

that you can touch,

because if you watch anything

 

long enough you

start to feel watched

 

& it might be enough

to seem to be seen
