You and I: Mask and Mask by Adam Cornford

You are the God-made image of God
I am a flat-faced ape with an overgrown brain

You are the composed captain of your fate I
am an ocean’s bone-coral colony of specialized cells

You are identity’s animate armor striding through
time I am a superposed standing wave in a ceaseless flow

Your body is towered clay with a soul folded in My body is
a ramifying weave of energy trees and information trees

Your skin is a sheath for unregarded meat My skin
is the sail of a vessel voyaging in all directions

at once You are first person singular
I am first people singular
