i am

I am a ghost
passing through people
and things
without ever
an affect

I am a wisp of smoke
wrapped around your hands
your head
without you ever knowing
I was there

I am steam
collecting and condensing
on your skin
only to be
wiped away

I am made of rice
fallen from the moon
rabbits stood on tip toes
to make me

I am an allegory for war
reason and
blind emotion
fight the individual
invisible battle

I am a seer of light
made of coal
I absorb and emit nothing
an observer
I am alone
