Here, in

Whereas, Now

So that, it unfolding, becomes the whole of

Union & Loss

Strange that, after a full emptying

We still find things to Give & give away, for free

And still find ways to hurt and to Hurt

As if the history of rivers

Is a darkness

And also a light

Five degrees below Zen

The sketch of a saint, the dust under

Cell crumbles

Particles of human hope and yes, of anger

All things one day, like the tide

with the force of nothingness

Push in   and pull out
