  • I am not my name
    my name is not me

    I am not infinite
    or finite, boundaries
    don't protect me

    not sweet or mean
    or bittersweet

    I am not the stories I write
    my stories are not me

    I am not the past,
    or the future
    I am the present

    I am everyone you ever met
    and no one you know

    I am a star lily
    and a snap dragon
    and mikweed

    a cloud and a rock
    and a mother and
    a human

    a dreamer and
    a sinner and

    a thunderstorm and a
    sunset and a kite
