nameless and free

nameless and free
note from self

we all carry names—
required on this planet
of thises and thats
they are needed
and useful but
do not believe them
they hide a clear truth
obvious and unseen
we are one moving whole
in this unbounded array

the fox doesn’t know
she’s a vixen, nor the
wren aware it’s a bird
neither rattler a snake
nor mustang a horse—
they offer themselves
inhabit their being in
accord with their way

I’m writing a poem a day. These are drafts—not final versions.
