EVENTUAL EGALITARIANISM
(12/3/13)


I stand
in line
at the supermarket

evaluating
those about me

what a disturbing
collection
of humanity

yet
I am in
the midst
of them

I apparently
belong

I look
at us

so concerned
with the dreary
details
of our daily
lives

what else
is there?

we muddle
along
through the minutia
until we die

then
each of our
specific souls
will seem
fairly much
the same

we'll simply
be additional
fading personalities
in that growing
collection
of the dead

perhaps
others
will think
of us

as they
stack
their groceries
upon those
conveyor belts
of immortality
