I wonder

I wonder
about each fleeting breath I draw
so many atoms, molecules
in the air
are they part of me
’til I exhale?
Some I absorb
they’re in my blood
for how long are they part of me?
Each tear drop, toe nail
strand of hair
I leave behind me
and move on
yet they retain my DNA.
What is this body
that I will one day leave?
Can it really be defined?
