If life were like fairy tales, I'd have been devoured by trolls already.

the world is made like this

One night
the wind blew down and blurred the colors of earth,
to make them insubstantial.

I walked among strangers.
Blurred myself, they blurred beside me
so that we moved like leaves at a wind-dance,
oblivious to each other,
alone with the sky.

I raised a thought to God.
God’s voice whistled, and sighed,
but formed no words in reply.

The world is made like this:
made only for itself
but it is us
and we are it.
