ABSENCE
(1/26/15)


we attempt
to find meaning
in the everyday

birth
life
death

earth
water
air

peering into
these essences
for salvation
that just
isn't there

all
of them
simply
are

or
are not

without
our assistance

without
our augmentation

let
them be

they are
complete
unto themselves

it's our egocentric
emptiness
that projects
voids
into that
which is whole

these fears
leave us
wanting
even though
all
has already
been provided

we
are the holes
in our own
universe

to fill
them
we simply need
to step
aside
