ITíS NOT THAT HARD†

Itís easy, the breathing, despite
rain sluicing off the metal roof.†
pollen and mold spores.† The mind,
you know, inhaling, exhaling
matter.† A different breathing.
Quieter now.† Rain coming in syllables.
Just consonants really.† Imagine
the vowels like Arabic.† Meaning
is there to be decoded, broken
down into charges, flares
of life force across the membranes
to light up cell after cell to the
infinite reaches beyond.
