I am an aqueous thing

I am an aqueous thing

as if:

the water inside me is drawn
to external bodies—

to watch nothing but motion across
the soupy collection of molecules,
a microscopic zoo.

They are in me too!

Tiny tenants, sans inkling,
thoughtless like me.

I sway and drift on
life’s strange current,

on forces imagined,
made manifest by acceptance,

memes, ideas, notions,
and regulations, confederacy
of micro and macro,

amalgamation of millions,
the tug of trillions,
little gravities,

urgings of atom,
beta-bond, amoeba,

Charles Darwin,
East Bunny,
