Water

burn me

clean me

throw me

in your arms

 

i am a pebble

worn

waiting by the whims

of gravity

welcomed by the clouds

heavy, gray

grown thunderous

loud

 

i am a drop

ascended from

the saturated

earth

hot

turbulent

restless soil

kissed by the sun

 

give up

everything

and fly into

the long-burning fire

carried by the air

into unfathomable

heights

 

ascended

 

suspended

 

above the lights below

above the creatures below

above the dead

below

 

alone

 

with countless others

drifting

in the moment

 

you too will crash

 

you too will congregate

will consummate

the marriage of

One and One

you have become

still

 

One

 

drop

 

falling

 

falling

 

falling

 

falling

 

splashing into others

to become

still one

falling

and falling

some more

reaching terminal velocity

 

It seems like you will

fall

 

and fall

 

forever

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SPLAT!

CRASH!

SPLIT

into

TOO MANY PIECES

TOO MANY PIECES

TOO MANY PIECES

melting and molding

sinking and growing

flatter flatter flatterflatterflatter

you are

a stain

upon the rock

from whence you came

again

 

it seems like you’ve done this

a million times before

but you don’t know anymore

who you are

or what you’re doing

but you do it

because that’s the way

you are
