International Klein Blue

In my dreams
I stand nervously
Hesitant
My toes curl around
The edge of hard
Sharp concrete
And I am scared.
I am exhilarated
Also
As I dive right into
International Klein Blue

Something strange
Takes me over
Depth made actual
Infinity tangible
With eyes open
I drink blue
I consume blue
I become blue
And blue is me

The secrets of the cosmos
Reveal themselves to me
When I swim in
International Klein Blue
And the secret is love.
Unbounded
Ineffable
Fathomless
Blue.

Frequencies
Waves
Particles
Quanta
Deep
Is this
Blue

I may emerge
In another universe
Or in the day after tomorrow
But for this instant
I remain
Here
Where everything is one
Reduced to the heartbeat of love.

We all can do this.
You too.
I’ll see you,
Buddy, soon
In
International Klein Blue.
