Keeping Things Whole

BY MARK STRAND

 

In a field

I am the absence

of field.

This is

always the case.

Wherever I am

I am what is missing.

 

When I walk

I part the air

and always

the air moves in   

to fill the spaces

where my body's been.

 

We all have reasons

for moving.

I move

to keep things whole.
