up my spine

it holds me

from behind.

the knots

of vines


up my spine.

i hold them

my breath

holds them

for me

they begin to hold the front of me.

inside and the breath

so again i breathe

there is only air inside of me

only liquid

all i can be

is stardust

and galaxies.

you see me

with a body

but it is only

how you see.

you can only see

me as a body.

when truly

i am a galaxy

the stars and sun and me

liquid running.

liquid space

as time

and place

the vines wrap spine

only mind

only body

only idea

they are to me/

like people

and galaxies.
