Custody

We are not the sum of  our custodies,

nothing belongs to us,

not the air inhaled

gasping secrets,

as those too must be released

and recycled.

 

Possession is our belief

that tenure defines

ownership, since

the longer the burden

binds a person

to its enticement

he grows attached,

and entitled to it.
