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,
but 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 in yes (in yea),
so thought, where yin meets yang
there must be blessedness in nay 
(in not)
