Outward, Inward

Contain,

Contain

You-see-through-glass

Bring the water to my lips again


The molecules are more focused in the glass

Than they are in the water

And the table has even more

And then there’s the floor


On the foundation rests the house

And that house sits on the ground

Which is as dense as the earth is wide

He pulls the molecules aside


Contain,

Contain

You-see-through-glass

Bring the water to my lips again


Loosely fitting pieces

Sit atop magma and rock

The ground sits on top of the shelf

And I sit on top by myself


Oh, where does the earth rest?

And how does space sound?  

Maybe the earth is a glass

To the beginning, alas!


Contain,

Contain

You-see-through-glass

Bring the water to my lips again


Contain,

Contain

“A glass can only spill

What it contains”
