little did I know

 

little did I know
that it would come
to THIS

 

that THIS
would be the shocking
truth –
the answer I had both
longed for and rejected

 

that THIS
would be as obliterating
as a terrorist’s bomb;
that the old life
would not survive

 

that THIS
would be the revelation
in naked, unskinned knowing
of the miracle
of every moment’s
breath:

 

only THIS
breath-breathing ‘I’

 

omg

not

even

that
