      Boundaries
       
      The universe does not
      revolve around you.
      The stars and planets spinning
      through the ballroom of space
      dance with one another
      quite outside of your small life.
      You cannot hold gravity
      or seasons; even air and water
      inevitably evade your grasp.
      Why not, then, let go?
       
      You could move through time
      like a shark through water,
      neither restless or ceasing,
      absorbed in and absorbing
      the native element.
      Why pretend you can do otherwise?
      The world comes in at every pore,
      mixes in your blood before
      breath releases you into 
      the world again.  Did you think
      the fragile boundary of your skin
      could build a wall?
       
      Listen.  Every molecule is humming
      its particular pitch.
      Of course you are a symphony.
      Whose tune do you think
      the planets are singing
      as they dance?
