and they used to tell us


and they used to tell us

that the air we breathe

is oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide

and some little amounts of other gases

and now they’ve the technology

to analyze and even calibrate

the toxic particles

in the air we breathe


but there’s still nothing on earth

to identify or measure You

in the air that we breathe

for the observer determines

the object observed

and the reality we know

is only the reality

that we can know


in the measure and kind

in the rudiments

of instruments

the technology

of epistemology

of our limited mind
