The Cezanne Minute

It's how birds are awake to that single minute
     in the life of the world that keeps going by that keeps
you keeping a peeled eye on them
     in their infinitely minute changes of colour as each
speedy heartbeat hammers its own brisk
     rivet of breath onto air you're staring through at them
while 'Breathe in now' says Cezanne
     as he eyeballs another brilliant square inch of the
perpetually unsettling here and now
     gone world 'and hold it'.
