"Ah--appropriation!" by Joe DiMino

There are times I wonder
About most everything,
Seeing the same miracle
In the smallest
As well as
The super imposing large
(Those far off forms
And places I always
Want to be
And quite can’t 
Develop to reach;

A complex of dimensions

Where the body is barred
And the soul
Is never appropriately prepared)—


There are no simple words…

Generations of thought
For the first indelible groan
To a printed dictionary—

I am certain
It was never the
Chicken or the egg,
But a question
Not knowing
Only satisfied
When wondering….
