from BARDO

The stars are in our belly; the Milky Way our umbilicus.

Is it a consolation that the stuff of which we’re made

is star-stuff too?

– That wherever you go you can never fully disappear –

dispersal only: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen.

Tree, rain, coal, glow-worm, horse, gnat, rock.

this moment

And this is how it is:
dazzling moments of sun
the puzzle of cloud
a darkness of rain
then slowly, slowly
one by one the wayside
flowers bloom.
