The Whole World is Just One Thing

when I stand on this hill with summer in my eyes
walled within grey cloud banks, the sky shakes
a river of wind flows through the valley
lightning happens branches shift rain falls
I can hear the roofs rattle
setting off a trillion sparks in me

and the hill is within me and summer rain and wind
are all at once inside my head and fill my body

I know there is only one thing and never two things
not the world and not me but something else
something that is just one thing
that I can understand and know only for an instant

then in the second half of that same instant
I forget what I know and there are two things again

I am lost until it rains
then I remember
there is only one
