People among the trees
Confused about how much junk food it takes
To knock a few years off your life
And life is so long
After dementia
For everyone
Caring for each other
Long before we’re ok and long after
With a lot of freedom in the middle
To taste the dimensions of our world
The contours of a lover’s body
The electricity that flows between
Exploring the structures that surround us
Seeing patterns and delights
Building and destroying
Loving and leaving
A dance of DNA through the ages.
