Maxime Banks #1 - Time Being Many Worlds (for Octavia E. Butler)

The force field of invisible things
radio imagination
braid time being

singular shadows 
shroud blackness
tomorrows collide

particles entangle
channeling quantum thinking
beguiling time

defy space
the force field of invisible things
remembering futures

many worlds
time being
more brilliant than infinite collapsing stars.

    1. Great to hear. Butler and her art inspire me on many levels.

      “I have the kind of imagination that hears. I think of it
      as radio imagination.”
      --Octavia E. Butler (from a 2001 interview)

  4. Hi Maxime. Your poem.
    I really really like
    how it breathes in and out.
    It is a living thing.
    And a great ending.
    And welcome to this space.

    1. Salut Rob,
