"Past Lives" by Joe DiMino

So what does the mystic do
When feeling detached?—
Blame a past body
For the same soul’s division…

At times
The body refusing to go
Where the heart leads,
The mind
An alien species
Clinging to old atmosphere—

Body, soul, and mind—
Can one leave behind entirely
Without the other, at least,
In memory trailing?

If God is everything

Then surely we are

At times feeling hung-out to dry,
Suspended in both present
And past airs….
