Because

Because

Because you asked me to.
Because of the Internet.
Because of fear.
Because of the dog down the street.
Because of flags and their waving.
Because of the child’s broken hand, slung.
Because of the face she makes in heartbreak.
Because of goggles.
Because of Google.
Because of the liquidity of stone.
Because light is finer than any sieve.
Because we believe in capture.
Because the spinning wheel.
Because opening the mouth wide is not enough.
Because he couldn’t breathe.
Because of all the love notes.
Because I am so certain it’s untrue.
Because I am not certain.
Because hummus and broccoli.
Because I can’t not.
Because all the edges meet.
Because behind the wave are more waves.
Because of the malleability of flesh.
Because of the uncertain orbits of planets.
Because of telemetry.
Because the tesseract.
Because why not.
