The Half Of It  illustrated by Joe Kowalczyk

“It’s human as a human eyeball,”
she says, “to fumble our deep knowledge
that the empty sky is teeming full
beyond our view, and the oceans—huge
and crowded—go all the way down.

From the earliest age, we’ve drawn trees
as trunk, branches and leaves—never mind
the alleged subterranean
activities, the unseen details
we gloss over—it’s natural. But

we don’t remind ourselves we forget.
One practice,” she says, “is to wake up
with the intention of extending
ourselves into what we don’t perceive,
letting our actions cross that blind edge

into those other realms. How will we
then modify what we do daily?”
