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 and
didn’t have 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)
