the only divide

the only divide of
land and water
is the negotiating table,
the coastline,
that fluidly
moves
with the motions
of the moon.

most impossible

god, are you a cloud
small vaporous wonder
lightly drifting thought
encircling forever
the globe

constant mass
changing volume

condensing rain
release as you rise

climbing mountains
filling streams
taming valleys
canyons
the great abyss

how do you make deserts
if not
by uprooting trees

making space
for most impossible life

the rich biosphere
that lives
underneath
my
toes


are
you
an ant
carrying crystals of salt
the miracle of life
amidst a dry ocean sand

or the unthinkable
porous magma ocean under land
