It would be so easy if we could find ourselves
at the bottom of a coffee cup
when we take our last sip,
or in the garden
as we overturn the fertile ground,
or maybe in the milky soap bubbles
left in the sink after we wash our hands.
It would be a relief
to discover ourselves in such a simple way.
To stumble on a crack in the sidewalk,
glance down at our feet
and suddenly see so clearly
what we’d been missing all along.
