Nothing to say

A twisted mess of a ball
Made from paper pulled out of a notebook
Ripped from a ream and cut from sheets upon sheets upon sheets spanning for miles across the plane of earth where forests house the trees that were lopped into stumps, shredded, flattened, pressed into the very paper that lies still upon the table cut from the same spruce which crinkles as I flick it onto the cold floor
…        …        …        …        …
The floor holds the paper ball, never disturbing it
It will only move when I pick it up again
It contains all that for which I try to say and have no need
…        …        …        …        …
That which I have to pick up, lest I get caught littering


If I had no possessions, I would give everything I had
To anyone who asked in any form of need

If I had no possessions, I would ask for the shirt off my brother’s back
I would share others’ things with others

If I had no possessions, I would live amongst everyone, all of the time

No sense of ownership to weigh us down or tether us
To a world of which we only know its four walls

The walls all fall down, one by one with each precious item we let go of with the same, shared love we all have of the ground we walk on

If I had no possessions, and you had no possessions except that which you and I hold in this singular moment together,
We could all be free to touch the untouchable, reach the unreachable, accomplish the unattainable
Then love might prevail.
