They Say Electric Forces

They say electric forces in my feet
Prevent my falling to the center of
The earth; to me it feels like solid ground.
They say the universe will keep expanding
Evermore; to me the stars seem fixed.
They say my retina will not respond
To most electromagnetism, but
I simply see the night and day. To me
These hands, the things they grasp, a breath, desire,
A fading springtime – these alone are real.
