i found myself in this body
a brook that broke from a river
as the bright sun bellowed
" wake up its morning!"

now a sand bar between two lanes
one being a want
and the other the understanding that
no land could be enough

its tactile
and it demands i agree that its real though i am still not convinced!
and it feels, oh it feels

but it does not fill

from here i cant see
the tops of the trees
i lay with the shrub and the flea
that is where You happened to be

so,
scrape the me out of me like pumpkin seeds
carve these hollows dry
then We'll have room to live together and food for all our Friends
and, when the ant and the worm come, we'll smile and invite them in!


we'll plant our plans in the ground and announce to our eyes that,
"for now we will cling to a mustard seed kingdom
where those who cant speak say more than those who can
and the deaf sing lyrics about the paintings of the blind!"
