ONLY HUMAN
(7/10/19)


I appreciate
your
effort

I really
do

but
you are just
another inhabitant
of a planet

circling
a star

revolving
about
a galactic
center

migrating
through the infinity
of the cosmos

in unfathomable
methods

a toad

a stone

have as much
chance
of truly
understanding
the motions
of The Divine

so when
you tell me
what God
will

will not
accept
from me

please
take no offense
if I do not
heed
your words

let me
consult first

with the
animal

the vegetable

the mineral

for a
consensus

for they seem
as unmoved
by your
rhetoric
as I
