World Enough by Maureen N. McLane


The sea’s in the dolphin, the sun’s
in the rose. The stars in my lungs
are breathing. The cloud’s in the rain
the sea’s in.

Time to unlink every chain
linking doing to what’s been done
to doing again and again—

the seas in the dolphin the suns
in the rose are the stars my lungs
breathe in the clouds in the rain
the sea’s in.
