i always assumed
rock bottom
was a solid tangible thump
a granite ground zero
glacier looming underwater
lurking in the darkest depths
of the human spirit
/an immovable object
that met and demolished
an unstoppable force/
but i’ve come
to realize
it’s more of an
endless earthquake
a colossal catch-22
programmed to
rebuild after every
a patternless neon
infinity staircase
the reality is
there is no such
thing as
rock bottom.
there is no one
fixed point of worst
in our lives
only a
darkly luminous life grid of
occasional meteoric highs +
increasingly devastating lows
absorbing and compounding
multiplying and swelling
expanding and constricting
until your soul
cries out, overwhelmed
and life goes on
