Only Breath / Nur Atmen / Só Respire / Solo Respire

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 or soul. –

I belong to the beloved, have seen the two –
worlds as one and that one call to and know, –

first, last, outer, inner, only that –
breath breathing human being.
