The Blue-Silver Being

I am a flat, graphite sketch

on a interdimensional being’s

drafting table.


I look to my right and left

and the being is shouting

at me about depth.


Depth? I ask. Like, what

in the hell is that? Then I

skip away feeling heavy.


I know the being is there,

but I can’t see it/him/her.

The being is blue-silver.


I pray to the being every

night, even though it/him/her

recently erased some of my friends.


I’m not super scared of getting

erased - mostly because, what

does that feel like, ya know?


My world is screens and planes.

The being’s world is cubes and shadows.

Maybe I wanna see stuff like that.


“Everyone gets erased at some point,”

the other 2Ds tell me. I wonder sometimes

about the thickness of this page.


If I am a drawing, is there a drawer?

Woah! Am I made in the being’s likeness?

Creation ideas abound in two directions!


I am a bunch of curvy

and straight lines. The being is

fractal-crystal-galaxy-turbulence.


I will never understand

the ways of the being.

I’m too thin to take all that in.
