Can you believe it ?

29/1/00

What is real ?
We can catch fish using a reel
We can lay wire from a reel
Show films from a reel
but do we feel real ?

In the strange quantum worlds are
colours as we see them ?
Or are things even more charming, with
newer delights to be seen ?

I may be here, I could be there, parts
of me could be anywhere, or everywhere,
but where is here ?

My brain tells itself that my eyes see
the world that bites my nostrils, shatters
the peace of my ears and scratches
my skin.
But if I may not be here, then perhaps I
do not feel here,
so am I real ?
