unbecoming

We become
in the unbecoming

this winter
without a spring
this coffee
without a cup
this sun
without the moon
place of consonants
without vowels

there is
no adjustment
to being half
of a whole

or

the ground
falling out
beneath our feet
being bottomless
with no soft landing

hearts break away
into a future
where only
half
of everything exists

where we are
ALL
only
one breath
away
from
nothingness

In this unbecoming
we come to be.
