I once was not, and furthermore,
I am an (I) who will again be not

…. in the scheme of things

…. an (I) who is
…. whole, a part, a jot 

who never asked to be begot, but who
since, has asked a lot and, at times
has been besot without a clue of which or what
but always knew there’s blessedness in breath,
blessedness in in yes (in yea), so thought:

…. where yin meets yang
…. there must be blessedness in nay 
…. (in not)
