There is no need.


all we are sustains us.

Even breath is only a function

of a system.

Our hearts,

our lungs,

our brains;

they are not us

in the way

that photons

are not stars.

We are vibrations

coming through

in wavelengths.

We are a message,

travelling through

space and time.

An echo

of forgotten ancestors

and will,

reaching past

the boundary of death.

Out here,

all we are

is all we need.

We are signals.
