Biometrics

 

Some of the patina
of days gone by
rubs off on you

something
of the thumbprint of time
leaves its distinctive mark

something of days
to come too

when we come 
to ourselves
and to one another

by way of natural selection

by way of gravity
and rootedness

while the gravity of grace
remains rootless and unbound.
