a nanosecond is to a second as 1 second is to roughly 30 years

after raking the leaves together
i sprawl flat pulling them over me
the ground is cool under me
the leaves are warm over me
using awareness of quantum physics
i dissolve myself into the ground
my hair and skin crisp up into leaves
all colors red orange yellow purple magenta
i am the earth and the leaves
and the wind that blows them into the sky
only a damp spot remains
and soon it's gone
nothing is left of me
i get up and walk to the house
and make coffee
