The Known World


the world
is known in little bity chunks
and we think
we are gods,

but to know this:
the smile of a child
the glistening leaves after a rain
the light shining off a nearby rooftop
the hum of a bee
the chatter of a batch of birds
the sweet smell
of the air
in the early morning
or after a rain

or in the early morning
after a rain

to take a walk
and feel our feet touching the ground
and our spines holding us up into
the heavens
M sleeping on couch
or a doze
in the middle of the day
after working hard
in a garden
for two days
getting ready for a
Big Event

my heavens
what a world
and how
much do we have to know
to be
