I’m(mortality)

12/10/2014

The truth of your mortality –

your tenuousness –

is revealed

not only by a new line in your face 
or an oh my gray hair,

not only by recurring hunger and thirst

or in witnessing the deaths 
of living beings around you,

but as well 
because the ‘you’ of your thoughts  – 
the self-image you think into existence

along with the images of others –

shifts and fades away

again and again

right before your eyes.

Some times you notice:
my self has no constancy,
my self cannot be grasped –
and so too with the I’s of others.

Here a question remains:

how does this noticing occur?
