I am
where there are palm trees
and out of season mangos.
one left in my fridge.
there are penguins here.

yes, God breeds warm penguins.
God breeds all things.

in this place are buildings –
with more art than is in my pinky. maybe
something about being surrounded by water
draws out that water makes me whole.

man was never God’s greatest creation.

water is God’s greatest creation.

water has birthed more things than man.
in fact, man was the last thing
that water was added to, to sustain life.
