Not Christian or Jew or Muslim,
Not Hindu Buddhist, Sufi, or Zen.
Not any religion or cultural system.
I am not from the East or the West,
Not out of the ocean or up from the ground,
Not natural or ethereal,
Not composed of elements at all.
I do not exist,
Am not an entity in this world or in the next,
Did not descend from Adam and Eve
Or any origin story.
My place is placeless, a trace of the traceless.
Neither body nor soul.
I belong to the beloved,
Have seen the two worlds as one and that one call to and know, first, last, outer, inner,
Breath breathing human being.
