		untitled (***you are a moment)
		-------------------------------------------------------

		you are a moment
		strutting in the light of the lamps
		suspended by you on a wire
		you have burdened a tree
		with the fruit of the light
		you are dancing on bent feet
		you are gathering
		the scraps of days
		dripping with blood and the sun
		obedient
		to the whirling nature of being
		you let the earth spin
		around itself
