harvest

a seed is planted. time passes sight unseen. the life cycle depends on light, on water, on the knowledge intrinsic to our cells, not on witnesses. the body grows and decays all alone, in the light and in the dark. in mirrors. in empty beds. in full beds. with babies or barren. in the winter. in the summer. with good food, bad food, no food, and just enough food. the body withers. the body is resilient.

the seed sprouts. the sun rises, the sun sets. this is a performance for the sake of performance art. the earth needs no audience. I need no audience. you are my audience. together we spin. together we let go. there is a harvest, but I am absent. still, the table is laid.
