they tore out all the trees to make a new ramp yet here they are using the old one

there is no hole
in the water
yet the bird exited
through a hole.

i see it,
the hole,
where the bird
disappeared.

it’s just water,
this hole,
like the water
that surrounds it.

a hole,
characterized by
absence,
disappears from
waters’ surface.

a bird,
previously floating,
disappears.

i woke to float
freely in this
thin atmosphere.

i woke to practice
at forgiveness.

a hole is
characterized by
absence,
yet here
we together
are.
