Canvas

I am a wiggle, a wave
of energy — parity reflected.
I am quantum
fields of nervous symmetry

without well-defined edges.
I am carbon, oxygen . . .
billions of cells — all sentient.
What more might one imagine?

That too, illimitable.
I am one star and one breath
and the whole thereof.  I am
Buddha, Beethoven, Macbeth.

For every historical
bruise, every catastrophe —
wars, famine, the crucified,
your lack of self-mastery,

I provoke blame, condignly
placed, for I am infernal:
Hecate, Hitler, Hussein —
the corporate cannibal . . .

I am a wiggle, a wave
of energy.  Whore or saint?
I am intention and deed:
Your multifarious paint.
