Zona Pellucida

zero breaks in form and i was born

from winds that froth the Tyrrhenian Sea

wisp of an arachnid

suspended from the fine thread

of karmic destiny

lives fanned before behind me

of chance and consequence

a spiritual inheritance

with a yawn of hunger

wide and deep

and it was ever you

who could fill me

to a Self in multitude i bequeath

the humble band of sovereignty

in nature l’uovo never chases seed
