NPM 4-5: Keeping Things Whole

Today I am sharing a poem by Mark Strand.

Keeping Things Whole

In a field
I am the absence
of field.
This is
always the case.
Wherever I am
I am what is missing.

When I walk
I part the air
and always
the air moves in
to fill the spaces
where my body’s been.

We all have reasons
for moving.
I move
to keep things whole.

“Keeping Things Whole” by Mark Strand from Selected Poems, Alfred A. Knopf.

Happy Thursday all.

  1. Wherever I am, I am what is missing...

    This is so weirdly relevant to this week, I just don't know!
