from ‘On the Found’

I Am Is

I must empty
am not emptied yet
I don’t know what I was
I don’t know if I
emptied am
I don’t know
I could not empty myself
Emptied then I
must be
or not
What are you
What are you
You never were
And so if I am
you are not
And is not
I am or not
Am or not
So is or not

I am is.

(cut-up: As I Lay Dying – William Faulkner)
