I once met a man
and asked him what he saw
where he's been
he said he's been to every land
every space
and he's never been the same

he said what are you hoping
to find in the

It's inevitable
he said and you will see
that you may walk through
the forest and touch the trees
and crunch the snow on the
mountains' caps

but you'll never live
the same way twice
you will change
and shed your skin

you will become the earth
and settle deep within the roots
love will come
love will go
there is no time capsule in
the world I know

that can preserve anything
