Keeping Things Whole

Everything about this poem was interesting!  The poem is called Keeping Things Whole, but the lines and stanzas are broken up and not whole at all.  I think what he’s saying is how everything keeps going on, even after things happen.  That’s the meaning I got from it, like how he says the air fills in where he was a moment ago.  It’s comforting to know that things will always work themselves out like in this poem.
