Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu, Buddhist, Sufi, or Zen.

Not any religion or cultural system. I am not from the east or the west, not out of the ocean or up from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not composed of elements at all.

I do not exist,

am not an entity in this world or the next, did not descend from Adam and Eve or anyorigin story.

My place is the placeless, a trace of the traceless.

Neither body or soul. I belong to the beloved, have seen the two worlds as one and that one call to and know,

first, last, outer, inner,

only that breath breathing

human being.
