Soon after there is here
Dora fits a camel through a needle’s eye.
She is not sure why the camel
emerges out of nothingness to perform this trick.
She carries a needle everywhere
in case that emergence tickles her right shoulder blade.
Dora does not take the result
as spiritual permission to become filthy rich
or pass through Jerusalem’s walls
through a mythic gate.
She notices that here is now there
even though she did not move.
Dora figures the earth’s rotation effects this change
as minutes pass.
