IN THE DARK

IN THE DARK

Only a fool draws
A line between the living
And the non-living

For where oh where shall we
Mask-encumbered fools that we be
In unwitting ignorance decide

To draw … in windblown sand …
Some fingerwagger of a line?
A vital question long overlooked

How ever to draw
A line between the living
And the non-living?

Only a fool draws
A line between the living
And the non-living

  3. …and yet…. also exciting to be a part of a transition. Difficult but invigorating and evolutionary. Deep breath, turn and face the monster, right? On a collective scale, not just individually…
