Multivalence

“I am that I am,”
cried the Buddhist
before commanding us,

and later the medicine man
considered the lilies
in the field

and the business
woman’s husband
tried to get it right—

once and for all
and all for one,
so that now

the fool on the hill
can watch the world
going round and round.

                     tossed by the fingertips of "that I am."
