You can be as many-souled
as the things the butterfly was

You can wobble in ecstasy
be an unreliable narrator   for your family

your loved ones

They may want to do a cavity search
of your mind

It’s okay

The Process

I like religion. Sometimes. If it gives people
distance from the process, which is everything.
Transcendence. Some it turns to rabid dogs.
That’s a different process than the one I’m talking about.
The one which is all.
