How Aren’t You? 

07/03/2017

How aren’t you? 

Not: how are you? 

How aren’t you? 

Right now, 

what are some

of the myriad ways

that you aren’t?

Have you been any or all 

of these ways in the past? 

Might you be any or all

of these ways in the future? 

Aren’t you a center 

for many or all of these ways

to manifest, 

each on its occasion?

On their occasions,

how do they color you? 

And what you may never be, 

how do these absences color you? 

Aren’t you a clear, empty mirror, 

reflecting what comes and goes,

even the absences of things?

Are you permanently colored

by any particular reflection

or do they all come and go?

(Look, here they come.)

What is the mirror of you

without them?
