Once


once
only once
in a while
i become alien to myself
momentarily
when the world puts its foot out
to trip me
and i fall
and get up
and it’s foreign
and alien
and unreal
i don’t belong here!
let me out!
i’m caught in a mirror with a hole in the glass
and i look out
to nowhere,
notime
nothing
and less
and i seem to belong
and if from the river you gather a drop
to water the earth
it soaks and it runs and it tries to get back
tries to get back
to the Sea
