from the down side looking upward
i see life
how it has and has not been lived.
on the front side looking back
i see an old child.
from the hind side moving forward
i feel a fresh light filling my chest
and i am a fluorescent filament.
from atop this hill i see
how foolish i have been
believing the next move will make me
seeking a strong storm to break me.
on this side of yesterday,
i see that yesterday is.
yesterday i am born
yesterday i am beginning
yesterday i become.
