Illiterate

a mixture of context flutters across
the zoom
music

formulates response
allowing beauty’s touch—
enter and scatter

waste across streets to find
birds pecking at their dentist
gaining entrance in
grocery store

outside the apartment
one lives in
even if temporary the

body as it is holds
what it contains
to breathe
who it is to

relationship with
small things
someone upstairs coughs

as in
matter or anti
and all

numbered among many
was there
education was there

non-education
all have language
including those who lost ability to learn it at age 7
scientists now show found ways to continue the capacity to communicate
we never knew, where in you

are you one of those who never learned
