Private Autobiographies

We are both. As change
Has an aspect mistaken
For stillness, we have

An aspect no more than self,
Easy to mistake for whole,
And we have these words.

We have both—the I, given
To us by learning language,
Personal, inherited

As the patterns in our cells,
But in a different manner,
And we have ourselves, the thoughts

That even our thinking cells
Can’t think by themselves.
