I could tell you everything about this hallway
every who-cares detail
befriend and name each molecule in the red carpet
because every iota contributes something
its presence ensuring its significance.
My description could be just one word:
or it could be tens of millions
more than you would ever read
elaborating on the history of electricity
and how it was used to manufacture every material here.
How much is enough
when can I stop?
The floorboards are angry
because I forgot to tell you
that the forest they grew in
once hid Daniel Boone
who never saw this hallway
