poetry

It encloses and divides
of course not just physically

say them and we become
us because of what

we are not–
imply danger

like an impatient shadow
which makes this safety

but not for much longer–
so what has changed?

The sun got lower.
Sell it quickly

there is no time, suddenly
no time to lose–

loss is arriving
so deny it

be afraid so they
become fearsome

discredit suffering
or accept the precarious–

was any of this earned?
This side of the sunset

and so not that
could it be

so arbitrarily that
the lots are drawn?

Like a line on a map
in the sand–

you have to draw it
somewhere or else

it wouldn’t exist
and then where

would we be?
And who?
