ebb and flow of matter


I used to think
that it was the dark shadows
out there
that were carving me up,
leaving the ever-disappearing
remainder of matter to call myself.

It occurred to me recently
that it was the light
in me
that was expanding my definition
out of the surrounding dark matter.

It now occurs to me
after listening to my heart
expand and contract
over and over
that it just
doesn’t matter.
