unity paper

(I’m writing a poetry book to be released early 2020. To sign up for notifications, CLICK HERE)

An enlightened man dissolves
either / or
by holding a piece of paper in the palm of his hand.

He holds
pulp from a tree
soil
sunshine
the river
a worker who has hopes, fears, love, and dreams –
a miracle.

Then he sets the paper aflame.
Watch it burn. Where is the paper now?

Where is
the tree
the soil
the sun
the river
the human?

They have become
the smoke that tickles my nose
the air
the blue sky
the clouds

And me.
