As Before

“Come Prima”
[“As Before”]

I know
there is perfection in the being of my being
that I am holy
as stars or paperclips
that the universe, moving from void to void,
pours in and out through me

There is a point, only itself,
that fills space,
An emptiness that is plenitude
A void that is all being, a being that is void

I am perfect
The wind is perfect
Ditchwater, running, is perfect
everything is.

I raise my hand

-A.R. Ammons
