A Paltry Attempt To Explain
My heart’s broken open.
I change and I do not change:
The waves move, the molecules move;
The sea’s still the sea
And there is no sea.
I have seen all these things before:
But I see them now for the first time.
The sand and the wind build the shore,
But there is no shore.
The wing and the cry are the gull,
But there is no gull.
The stamp and the breath are the ox,
But there is no ox.
Breathing in, I am here in the world;
Breathing out, I am here in the world:
Breathing in, I am here,
Breathing out, the world.
Breathing in, I am not.
