I live on the edge, the boundary,
between now and the future
that is not known.
Waking and sleep is one boundary,
thought and action is another,
starting and completion is a third.
These boundaries, these edges,
are caught in time and
in the textures of awareness
that construct my experience.
I am a bounded creature,
framed in the edges of a day,
strung between success and failure,
and defined in the partitions of
breath and dissolution.
