my brother believing
in the end,
is no act of a belief

does an apple
believe in its fall from the tree?
by the unseen hand of gravity

just an act of being
an act of seeing
no action at all

I've considered a wave crashing on the beach
The way the waters cover the deep

Down the street, a tree has forgotten all it's leaves
by the unseen hand of gravity

(is) believing is more than seeing
(is) seeing is more than feeling
this tug of gravity

piety without content
nostalgia and relief
the sacred lost the burden lifted
nostalgia and release
sentimental solitude
