Daily missive for Friday the 17th of May.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 17th of May.

There are layers
So much of what we are
Lies hidden
Beneath the skin
Which is in itself very thin
A mere membrane
To keep everything in
Without the bones
We would collapse
Mutually dependent
Humans and bacteria
Co-existing
Which one is the parasite
Are life forms
Ever truly independent
Perhaps nothing
We do or can become
Is done alone
There must be a way
To remain interconnected
Without a phone
If there is no singular
Then we are all individuated
In some other way
Defined by thought
How do we know
Which one is ours
When so many random
Happenings intrude
Into our abstractions
Perhaps right from the start
None of the strings
Were attached
To the heart
Follow the thread
It is a theory
But who can you trust
With an answer
To the question
Of a definitive proof of life
Whether on the inside
Or the outside
Of your head.
