Transformation not only 
occurs as singular

events bring about
unexpected change

in happening and in
thinking about being

one day we were one
and the next another

fire a result of breathing
language breaking

into constituent parts
the shapes of mouths

for all we know recognizable
and known recognized

for these words our deeds
acts described as love
