Maybe Light

.
Is
was
first an
infinite net
of titillation

when
came
I-Am
(eventually
quick)

a persistent
condition
a lifelong
concoction of
boundaries
as if one
viewpoint
were all

but
…… I
…… Am
is just
a flash in the
pan

snapped
glimpses
from a
river

instant
re-orientations
between
…… Is
and the
wine dark
sea

to be
caught apart
starkly still
a limb alone
snagged on
stone in a
flume
while the flow
moves on
to

….. We
….. Are
….. One

if
…… I
…… Am
vanishes
into
….. I
….. Am
…… Not
without
ever having
known

…… We

we’ll have missed
the infinite
possibility
of (maybe)

light

and
love
(its corollary)
