My flesh is dirt

I have never written as a page

or spoken as a word

expression is not elucidation;

and I sit among its branches.

Sometimes the world is flat

I’m rolling off its roundness

water splashing over the edge;

while mountains melt to the bottom.

Poetry is a moment lost

where everyone tries to follow

a river only passed through once;

many times over again.
