A building inside a building.

There is a building inside a building
in one building there is you
in another building there is me
the measure of seconds that leads to a life
is determined by the tadpoles that swim
and maybe if they’re tired
or they arrive late
whatever the case
there are infinite buildings inside buildings
in which there is only one of you
and one of me.

For there to be thousands of us all
roaming about dimensions
that would have to mean
that each person is predestined
and that’s not the case
life happens upon fertilization
and if another swimmer slips in
swiftly to the egg
you may not be you at all.

If there are an infinite number of buildings
you may only exist in one
and in this one building your standing within
slipping within the infinite possibilities
that partake each person
rippling down from centuries of time.

You may never existed at all
standing here in this one building
and maybe neither would I
and if you slipped in elsewhere
maybe there is no you to find
no me
someone else entirely standing
within an entirely different building
in that same location
in a rift
between here and there.

Thanks for reading.
