THIS HOME WE WILL ALL GO

Heads buy thoughts from many sources
As to how it is beneath, ha!
Untrusting, fearing, praying
Souls shiver in spirits which scare bodies
But we know the trip is imperative
No matter our standing

II
I know death is an animal unseen
That whose teeth tire not in chewing
That whose hunt never fails
That animal who lives in a country which has never seen hunger
Talk less of tasted drought
That animal who knows no labels
And has the ever working trap of invisibility
But even he sits for praises in shedding human tree of leaves
To pave way for the new

III
I would rather it is like a python
I can’t think of its teeth touching bodies
I would rather dreams are foreshadows of a nation in death
Where we will see all, but uncertainties shake their heads
While nodding
Making it difficult to be sure

IV
I pray we all meet
No matter how big its stomach
To live through hugs reassuring
To love through our immortal trust in happiness
To laugh though our arrival times unsync
You green ones plucked even before your yellowing browns
