Raised

This is the place
I was raised, this small
home,
the place I learned
my name, beliefs,
how to be,
to shake hands, exist
as a polite being,
This is the place
I stretched my legs
and began to walk
on the earth.

Assembling the Moving Parts

Assembling Line

it is as if they are standing
toe to toe
back to back
arranging the small colored pebbles
pretending that if they glue
them all together just right
they produce a living, thinking
whole being
but people do not grow this way
the truth is much more organic,
existential, and complicated.
