I was dark as a gigantic shadowed mountain
I was impenetrable like a frozen ocean
I was silent like cactuses in a desert of nothingness
I was absent as the cold sleep of death
I was static like an atom between galaxies
But I was not alone, not abandoned
We were lovers, young and passionate
We made love, through and through
Our bodies flew away in the agony of pleasure
Then we both, in the horizon of thought
Disappeared like gods behind the chaos of creation.
If an apple would expand to the size of the earth
One atom would be the size of the original apple
If my brain would expand to the size of the earth
What portion of land would hold my consciousness?
If an atom would expand to the size of my room
The nucleus of the atom would be the size of a speck of dust
If my neurons would expand to the size of the earth
Would I find myself at the level of continents, rivers or trees?
If the veil is lifted and the cosmos exposed
Will weight disappear,
and matter and I,
