Everything and Empty

Empty like many things

cannot be named

empty is a verb

but doesn’t happen

empty’s not a doing

empty is what we

consist of more

than anything else

life living itself

We seem to have

a universe empty

empty full empty

Is light empty?

Is house empty?

All things are full

of themselves

even Space is

full of itself

Is this because

they are also

Empty?

Housing themselves?

Do we call something

Empty when we

cannot otherwise

perceive its thus-ness?

Perception itself

is empty / capacity

to receive

As I touch in

with what

where

does

some

thing

be

come

Turn(Around and)Around

Stuck in(one)place once

now every place and no

place is belonging to me

World between worlds

where do you(two)dwell?

Sands of the ocean

at my back sky above

what is what seems(three)seeming

space and solid(and me)

changing places

resting now in sky

what is what now

(Four)Everything that moves

is Spirit Incarnate

we know–con-science–we are not solid

not even attached but

rooted somehow else

Things we make/take are part

of us and yet we(five)are entire

free naked whole without

any of these creature objects

or with, the same

(Six)th sense

I rest
