The Process Moves

The process moves from simple
to complex and along the way
superfluous gets tossed away.
Where does it go? asked the
student of the teacher.
The part is whole and part
of the whole and
nothing wastes away.
Is that where superfluous goes?
asked the teacher of the student.
I hope so, because I’m feeling very
superfluous, said the student
to the teacher,
and the teacher said, sometimes
I do, too. And in that moment,
they didn’t, and so it goes.
