“Most Alive, But Some Dead”


I’ve seen and felt bodies,
Most alive, but some dead.
I know there’s a difference,
But how can it be said

Without calling to mind
Tales of great God above?
Of hidden trajectories,
And eternal love?
Of far, dreamy origins
And hopes for the end?
Of insinuations
That too often offend?

I’ve seen and felt bodies
Most alive, but some dead.
I’ll trumpet the difference
Wherever I’m led.
