…functions mostly as a consequence
of steady expenditures
of blood and bone marrow
some hair follicles
a tooth to every child
the shedding of skin
reserved air held in the space
between breaths
the expectation
of an evidence forthcoming
functions mostly as a consequence
of everything, nothing
and things in between
better to live for
I am an outgrowth
of My Own making
made whole by all those
whom I have encountered
and call My Own
functioning mostly as a consequence
of interconnectedness
and a desire to never be left alone
in the world I have made.
