Belonging by water  

Dan Vera

see the hieroglyphics in a drop of water
recite the names of the infinitesimal multitudes
bryozoa, protozoa, heliozoa

the billion numbered hosts
the angels of our common arising
reminding us of our kinship by water
to the rest of the world

the organisms within us
the cuneiform calling cards of our belonging
