In The Flesh

So what if I write and speak
of the moon, and the stars
the planets, the sun
in the palm of my hand

I am a human, woman
living out my existence
passing through time
along side you

So what if I think I see things
far beyond the sight
of those who cannot see
past their own noses

I live in a humble abode
from a humble beginning
walk a humble road
humbling along

So what if I think I understand
why Dante named his poem
a Divine Comedy
and why Buddha
grabs his belly, laughing

I laugh along with them
after walking the suffering road
my soul now standing forth
shining with life anew

Yet even with all that
I am flesh and blood
walking this earth
cleaning toilets, doing dishes
but only if I have to
