a short statement from the latest arrival

I wish to make a statement

the latest new-arrival said

I wish to tell you all
about my life

when I was born …

was the way he began
in a slow-build that took no account
of time

but as I trod lightly
between the stones
and the mounds in the grass
the sound I heard was the
woo woo woo
of the wind
