Keeping Things Whole

In a field 
I am the absence 
of field. 
This is 
always the case. 
Wherever I am 
I am what is missing.

When I walk 
I part the air 
and always 
the air moves in 
to fill the spaces 
where my body’s been.

We all have reasons 
for moving. 
I move 
to keep things whole.

Keeping Things Whole

In a field
I am the absence
of field.
This is
always the case.
Wherever I am
I am what is missing.

When I walk
I part the air
and always
the air moves in
to fill the spaces
where my body’s been.

We all have reasons
for moving.
I move
to keep things whole.
