vertical line i am One without a name
without a name I am not vain, lost or unmasked
i speak in silence when am in herd

seeing sites that fill the night so lifts the right
with gas to burn without delight, just give us more

um, Om, am, me

The space between us is still a part of us.

vertical line language that is understood bridges the gap between knowing and not

but the air we breathe connects us together with everything free of knowing or the duality of not being known
