Lifetime in the Grain of Sand

In the grain of sand

Passes entire lifetime

With its own galaxies

To reach out--

Just to reemerge in some other capsule

Drama

Random or staged


Being reborn grain after grain

Until your face-

Unknown and even so

Oddly familiar

Turns up on the beach

Or on the train

Sunk in being alone

Texting


Have we ever been the strangers—

You and me—

If we’re acting in the same play

With no beginning and no end.
