Our Only Real Ownership

Our only real ownership
Is that
found in our senses:
The life owned by our eyes
The tingle on our tongue
The ear’s interpreted vibration
The dream encountered by the nose
The skin’s sensitive envelopment
And emotion’s yoking centrepiece.

All else
Beyond what is physically ours
Is but borrowing and stewardship.
