Day 29: Island



What if there were no incidents, but only
Coincidence?
No event is an island, and islands are always in
Archipelagos.
Would we still give them names, make them
Memorable
But not talk about them, like a birth and death
Collision,
Like waves forced to attack time-beaten rocks and
Retreat
Leaving something you want between your toes, not
In your navel.

What if there were no individuals, but only
Indivisibles?
Every man is an island of a singular duality of
Singularity,
A plot cartographed in an archipelago of
Patronymics,
Proclaiming its own presence on pin-point
Obelisk,
Forced through a hard place into a rock of
Powderizing
Leaving something in your navel that requires
Your complete focus.

What if there was no incomprehensible God, but only
Immanuel?
Every man an island caught within the Bermuda Love
Triangle,
Bodies of land untied in one common cup of an
Archipelago,
A litany of names that make up a single name
Overarching,
Etched on the rock that falls and breaks apart
Everyone,
And builds them into a dwelling for God on a
Firm foundation.
