Exploration
Scientists spend their lives searching
for answers in atoms cells blood
reactions evolutions chemicals
radiation medicines revolutions

studying the world in every
conceivable formula. They say
before mitosis the cell must
replicate its DNA. They say
a cell's doubling must take place
before it rips and spreads.

I, too, have spent my life searching.
I say I may cleave in two as if I could
very well be more than who I am.
I say I cannot finish the first
evolution replication reaction revolution
without some energy or grounding,
or the merging of selves will not be complete.

I should perhaps change to holistic means,
but even when on mountains I never know
when the sucking of roots will be bitter or sweet.



tracy lynn
1995
