Identities

Identities

We are of the earth and yet
subject to the same first principles

fragments of an expanding cosmos
driven by the same waves of energy

that created the fox and the badger
the rose and the lilies in the field

we are flotsam and jetsam
atomic debris attuned to time

and conditioned to pursue
truth and beauty and to romance

this fragile world with our words
voices crying out in the wilderness
