What the World Forgets

Material realms manifest without memory; everything happens

without knowledge or lore. In life you only move, falling

off the cliff’s edge to unbecome, forgotten

every moment by space and solidness. But spirit forgets

nothing, not you, kings and gods, not trees, rivers and rocks.

In spirit nothing happens but everything is,

simply is,

as still as stone and just as sure

— or surer, still remembered when all is dust.
