SCARS AND STARS
(7/13/17)

we try
to reconcile
our worlds

our failing
bodies

against
the relative
permanence
of the planet

the cosmos

ever changing

but always
there

we are
part
of the earth

of the heavens

we know this
with certainty

because our pain
reminds us
that soon enough
we shall return
to them
