At The Center Of The Earth....

                            "En cada planeta hay un cielo y un infierno...."

                                                       Francisco de Asís Fernandez

At the center of the earth
does the falling rain clatter
upon itself?

Does the body electronic
pass through two doors
at the same time like Siamese twins
shot out of a cannon at the circus?

Let the left hand ask the right
cheek to cheek
like salmon swimming upstream.

Poet dances with whatever planet
weighing everything, weighing nothing....

[E. A. Costa 1 October 2013]
