 "agora" by Matthew Yates 




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
