i am you

& you are me2018                                           


subtle love     


preparation     sleepless night
4:00 AM no one awake but boats

robe tied   oil steeped

moving slowly to shore

crisp air like cool breath on wrists

first light 4:44 AM

screaming cry of seagulls
low tide   slipping stones  &  itching legs

burning retinas     missing sun     


sitting like a rock

waiting for light to break

clouds     oil to crown 5:05 AM

sunrise     oil to sole 5:16 AM

rain    the divine 5:18 AM

submerge   58° ocean

sprinting heart     breaking waves     emerge  day

co-conspirator 5:29 PM candle / sticks / matches

      fingers   flame  &  smoke

                spiraling sweet aroma 5:34 PM

                  a different state of mind

          a deeper presence of body

      awakened 11th sense 5:50 PM

                      the distinction between

      past & present gone 6:47 PM         

the difference between

             physical & nonphysical

                                         vanished 8:52 PM
