I am never certain of
Truths I learned as each
Was felled with the

Frequency of lunar
Cycles and momentarily
Replaced by allelic

Variants piercing my
Powers of ratiocination,
Leaving interstitial

Inferences I endeavor
To alleviate in the guise
Of communion with

Words I hold sacred
Authored by others who
Vow to sustain me

Without need of
Antemortem miracles
While my present

Body saunters toward a
Posthumous encounter at
The plateau of my soul

“We must not accept the proposition that a relationship with a government, political organization, religion, belief system, corporation, geographical border, or even family constitutes an irreducible primary. The irreducible primary is the human species, and this fact is firmly established by the unique composition and determinative influences of human beings relative to all that exists.”
