The What and Who of Meandering About

Interactions

(a poem inspired by Carlo Rovelli)

We breathe 
the same air. 
We occupy 
the same space. 
Yet our 
place,
our
time; 
our 
here, 
our 
now
are relative 
are experienced differently
to the eyes 
through which 
we see
and the bodies
through which 
we experience. 
Creating 
our own
existence 
our own
reality
because of our
perspective. 
We are 
these moments,
an endless series of 
interactions
within
without. 
When our moments 
collide  
we can become 
collaborators 
or perhaps mortal
enemies?
And if we split 
these atoms
these collections of particles
these interactions
there is potential
for immense power
and tremendous 
destruction. 
And so is the dance;
as these 
human happenings
strive to become
human beings
together.
