A Poem by ayaz daryl nielsen

turtle oneness

a woman and her cat
are one as
a man and his dog
are one
and they stand upon
a turtle
standing upon
another turtle
standing upon
another turtle
an infinite descent
of turtleness
and a woman and her cat
and a man and his dog
and turtles
down . . .
are one.
