180. Benign Being

bird as
leaf as
blowing

hand of
cup of
drinking

thought in
sight in
being

moss on
rock on
lying

the
blue
sky

the
green
earth

the
grey
forms

of
this
night

the
grey
forms

of
this
night

and the
way the
night

makes the
trees the
sinister

shapes the
trees must
be

what sleep
what dream
what rest

what run
what fall
what stand

what go
what come
what stay

what want
what need
what wish

in every
crook of
every

in every
finger of
every

in every
hand of
every

in every
arm of
yours

we lull
beside
ourselves

we leave
inside
ourselves

we live
alongside
ourselves

we love
bestride
ourselves

the ocean
of the
ocean

of the
ocean of
the ocean

the heavens
of the
heavens

of the
heavens of
the heavens

reside
inside
us

increase
beneath
us

extend
beyond
us

expand
beyond
us
