Closer Than Skin

A dog can shake off water,
but I cannot shake off Tao.

A child can slink away and hide,
but I cannot slip away from Tao.

Rain can wash away mountains,
but I cannot wash away Tao.

Tao is closer than my skin,
more intimate than my breath.

Why would I want any more
distance than that?

A glass of water.
Thunder. Wait for it. Wait. Sleep.
Dream without dreaming.
