Unity of Existence – Vignette by P Chatelain


Brighton Beach, 2010, by P Chatelain (Panasonic DMC-FZ5, ISO400, f/8, 1/800th, 8mm)

As I looked out over the thousands, I felt subtle and individual spirits. At a distance, a visage of indistinguishable beings with the same life energy as a mass of grass or cold ocean. They lined the horizon in multicolored specks of life. Thousands of consciousnesses, blurring together into one unity of existence.

(and I still can’t fight the urge to keep just you in focus, the dazzle through vagueness.)

Author: Mr. Phillipe

Phillipe Martin Chatelain / @uptownvoice / Phillipe is the Managing Editor of In Parentheses. He is a poet from New York City with a Masters Degree in Poetry from The New School. He writes as someone in the tradition of the urban troubadour or the flaneur–wandering, taking notes. He believes that poetry of our generation has taken on a much more digital definition. Furthermore, it is important for New Modernist writers like those exhibited in In Parentheses Literary Magazine to assume the forms of media available in order to carry on the history of Sublime Art. His series taking shots alone was self-published in 2012-2015. The self-published collection FACETS (2019) is now available.
