Keeping Things Whole

And now for something completely different...
I'm not a big poetry reader but this one really strikes me and I wanted to share it:


Keeping Things Whole
by Mark Strand


In a field
I am the absence
of field.
This is
always the case.
Wherever I am
I am what is missing.

When I walk
I part the air
and always
the air moves in
to fill the spaces
where my body's been.

We all have reasons
for moving.
I move
to keep things whole.
