how do we reveal what has never been concealed?

words & photo by me.

how do we reveal
what has never been concealed?

if i remove my hood,
i am still here.

how do we see
if we’re already looking?

when i open my eyes,
i tell my mind not to follow.

how do we hear
when noise already fills our ears?

be the breath that is the wind.
be the silence underneath the sounds.
catch lighting in the palm of your open hand.

how do we learn
when we already know?

feed your scraps to the dog.

how do we love
when that is all we are?

wipe your brow and smile.
