complex in simplicity

complex in simplicity
this flesh knows its workings

& I move thankfully unaware
of it, unknowing
the small daily living and dying off
of what makes me

those cellular selves
echoing the deep fingerprint
of the hands that shaped
not just this I

but everything

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
