Let’s Unmake Ourselves

Let’s unmake ourselves

in this tangle of unkempt

sheets,

tossed aside

at sunrise,

welcomed after

sunset

(as if the western horizon’s border

were actually

a wide table

and the sun were

a bowl of flowers).

The exploration

(our interstices)

becomes the long passage

between beginning

and ending.

Let’s unmake ourselves

piece by piece until

we have no pieces

and are nothing

more than perfect ideas.

Let’s unmake ourselves

bit by bit

and afterward

gaze at the cross-sections

like cell samples

under a neon

microscope,

the quirks written

on signboards

along a narrow, busy street.

Let’s unmake ourselves

until we have

made everything

through its unmaking.
