I lost my mind a time or two
beneath the rubber heel of shoe,
or between the common grain of sand
and the crooked line in palm of hand.
I thought I seen it on the floor
under the crack of metal door,
but I was wrong as time perceives
like wearing stripes on lengthened sleeves;
though this matter is neither here nor there
when the mind is lost below growing hair.

I found my name in drying mud
throughout the waves of Jesus’ blood;
etched likes stone within a book
with other names this world forsook.

I fell asleep under the sun
near white sand where water runs
beneath the shade of mustard tree,
and swallowed that its tiny seed;
clouded mind became a blur
cause was found when growth occurred.
