organic origami

are we but from one cloth cut
from first hem until last worn
never mended nor resewn

upon the potter’s wheel cast
moulded, kilned, by but one spin
never again to be rethrown

blown into a vase or flask
the gaffer’s breath our only wind
never half-molten and reblown

seed spread by wind and wing
once sprouted, in one place rooted
never running and regrown

are we organic origami
unfolded once and
never refolded again

or are we like the caterpillar
voracious eater until one day
weaves a bed of transformation

Descartes’ defined before his horse
Hamlet begging jest from Yorick’s vase
meta manifold metamorphosis

are we organic origami
unfolded once and
never refolded again

i once was a scriptwriter
truly all my warez r soft
encoding riddled codons

spinning spindles etched my lines
slugs upon the pounded platen
my characters automatons

yet over time my scripts evolved
screenplay driving dialogue
dreams cradled in olympus pons

half my characters act outside
beyond the sacred sixth veil
their drummers follow not my crons

are we organic origami
unfolded once and
never refolded again

essence distilled and crystal chilled
embroidered in wondrous words
elegance enticingly unfolds

each reader their own director
interpreting script uniquely
anew each scene and act retold

casting characters to behold
from the readers secret stronghold
dressed in blacks reds greens and golds

scriptwriting for the delegation
all the scripts directors possess
the tales myriad manifolds

new plot imbued from one presumed
one recipe rewritten by each cook
to suit their taste as they behold

are we but from one cloth cut
the living cloth rewrites the script
perpetually redrafted and resewn

are we organic origami
unfolded a trillion times
always unfolding again
