unknown

how can one hope
to be any less human

when home is the place
where we live

here in the hearth
of an earth
bound for ruin

unknown
and alone

unabridged

the scope of our sentence
belies even sentience

in spite of our bellowing breast

when all things lie hinged
on a starburst’s behest

what tenuous faith
lingers yet

  1. ‘what tenuous faith lingers yet’
    like this ending, a nice counter-balance to ‘home is the place’ & ‘unabridged’ – whatever goes on in the mind, we are connected as matter/energy to the big process, Universe.
    Why would anyone ‘hope to be less human’? (I wonder)

  2. Totally love this ending: “when all things lie hinged / on a starburst’s behest / what tenuous faith / lingers yet.” Anything could happen and yet, we hope. Because we are human. Because we NEED to hope. Thanks, Max. 🙂
