these forms we possess are one-shot deals

tailored to our time and the place we inhabit

in these particular skins

these aggregations of molecules and life force

these particular manifestations of our time in this place

that add to our lengthening list of identities

that at some point will add up to the total sum

of all the lives we've endured

oh tell the tales of woe and wonder

that each sojourn engendered in its progress

the details exciting sobering thought-provoking

but the Essence ever the only constant

by which our beings are weighed and measured

all pure weight awarded and each thumb on the scale discounted
