note to self

we see the ten thousand
things, hear and touch them
sense and smell them
convinced of our autonomy—
how is this dense table not
separate from my pliant body?
how can that person—who
has contrasting views
different skin, language
or belief—how is it
possible we are one?

start here—

you can’t survive minus air
trees give off oxygen
we depend upon—
days with no water and
we die—without sunlight
no harvest fruition
we count on farmers to
sow our sustenance—
interbeing is boundless
lions need gazelle, plants
require pollinators or wind

all born of consciousness
we are one family
