Everything Belongs to No One


The eye sees the form of you 
The mind grasps — what to do? 
The heart beats — the music of your name 
The ear clings to your 
Breath 
Moving
Everything belongs to no one 
Everything is changing always
The nose the tongue they take you in 
You linger on my sheets 
I feel you on my skin 
Long after the passing of the 
World we 
Made
I can’t follow my mind this creature 
Leap swing grab pivot new branch 
I, I, I, I for what "I" can describe 
I am the Monkey King 
Split a thousand times 
Again
Close the eyes 
Release the fist 
Silence falls — still all 
The body carries years, years 
Static, carries love, wide 
Carries joy, joy, joy 
Into the dark
Everything belongs to no one 
Everything is changing always
