Poem: Matter

Linger here.

This body with its

sagging skin and thinning hair.

Milk it.

Milk every precious moment

of matter-ing.


Let life matter.

Matter yourself

into this moment.

Matter yourself

into every single

breath, blink, and sigh.


Only your heart can give the blessing

that makes every speck of dust


every ant, fly, and maggot

a magnificent miracle.


Only your heart

can bless

this messy circus

into technicolor wonderment.
