Our skin is just a costume -
a flag by which we're mapped.
Within this epidermal cloak
the universe is wrapped.
I am you and you are me;
we are plant and sky
and river, raven, rock and rat -
all one progeny.
Energised, we function,
struggle to survive - 
perfect imperfection,
indivisibly alive.

 

Indivisible
