You were not.
A moment later you were.
A handful of moments later you joined the others.
You say you know how the others arrived
Not just the few who knew you when you couldn’t, who loved you when you didn’t.
You say you know how everyone arrived
Back to the first.
We know you moved to of nothing.
The One who made the nothing knows.
Muddy. Face smeared.
Shoulders slumped sat down.
Didn’t see the blows heard the cries. Felt the wind.
Rolled over by the thunder. The hooves. Pressed down.
Lost breath held on closed eyes.
Not mine on the grass.
Face smeared. Muddy.
Rain sheets. Mud streams away.
