Let’s Just Say

Let’s Just Say

All meaning derives from earth

the name for dirt and for our shared house

and science is a metaphor for truth

as every metaphor is a metaphor for
the boundary of a body being breached
to let in what allows it to live

If someone asked me to point up or down
to indicate where there was more

some days I would point down
to the old old ankles of a big tree

and others I would gesture up and out

and know we are a sandwich on a plate

Is there more in this world
eaten or uneaten
