Blessedness


I
once was not,
and am an I
who will again be 
not—

in the scheme of things
a whole, a part, a jot
who never asked to be begot,
who has since asked a lot,
who was at times besot
without a clue
of what,.
but knew there’s blessedness in breath
blessedness in yea (in yes)
so thought: where yin meets yang,
there must be blessedness
in nay 
(in not)
