Both the Same


I believe in solidity—marble: chiseled away to form a physique,

female parts, male parts, arms and elbows, shins and knees.

—bronzes: a model cast to the core and poured into the void,

then polished and patinaed into effigies, children, warriors.

—bricks: shaped from clay and adobe, cut concrete and stone,

stacked and mortared into schools, temples, asylums, prisons.

I believe in fluidity—flowing, gushing, hand carving canyons,

flourishing for the living, shape-shifting into ice and steam.

—molecules: cells forming blood, pumping pulse, filling veins,

feeding the brain, feeding people, living well or evil, both the same.

—flammable: gasoline and propane, lighter fluid, all removers,

whiskey, nitrogen, fuel for living well or evil, fuel for flame.

Wine is bottled poetry. ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
