Tat Tvam Asi With A Shift

how can it become small

it can’t be a small thing:

to open, to split, to melt

this one time of your pawky life

when someone else matters

more to you than you:


It cannot be a small thing

when the arc-light jumps

between skin-in and skin-out

subjective becomes objective

one becomes two and the two

reunite again into one and then,

and then . . . who can know?

you roll  and you hardly know

who is who and who isn’t . . .

none of this even requires a body.

But if we keep at this continuous

smoothing of our skins together

at this rate, by next year . . . .
