Parts of me are broken records…

Here is a generation

the best of all things
the best of the small things
the smaller things
the smallest things
the best of the widest
and brightest and greenest
and wildest things
the best of secret things
the best of not-so-secret things
the best of the best things
the best of the worst things
the best of the not-yet-existing
things the long-standing
things the see-through fragile
things the best of all
deep-settled quiet things
the best of spoken-loudly things

these things are everywhere
these things are nowhere
they are inside of me
they are outside of me
they are in the sky
in the ground
in the dresser drawer
on the desktop
they are in your eyes
they are in my hands
they are everlasting
are fleeting
are floating are
sinking swimming
dying living are coming
are going are
birthing are killing
they are bloody
they are empty
they are shining
they are shadows

they are nothings
take these things away
I will make new
things you will make new
things we will fall in love
with so many things
we have never felt
we will fall in love with
our own making we will
lose things to make
new things to love
making love losing
things loving making
you and I and you
loving losing making
the best of all things
