call it me

“For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either. The ends of things and their beginnings are impregnably concealed from him in an impenetrable secret. He is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness out of which he was drawn and the infinite in which he is engulfed.”― Blaise Pascal

While emerging
from the dark,
containing everything,
she could see
that on the other side
of the canvas, was the light,
the white of nothingness.
And she thought,
isn’t it the nature of life,
as a centerpiece
for the nothingness to be,
striping away the multitudes,
and then, back again,
in a cyclical pattern called ‘me’.
