It Is Not Impossible To Survive

It is not impossible to survive – 

You have mastered solitude, struggled to unpack

the thick realities of time and matter. Love has flattened

you. Measured, you have faced your least loveliness. 

How fragile God’s graffiti, the text of us scrawled

wild, twisted into this renegade, complex sentence

of living! How the making betrays and becomes us! 

Look at the tree revise its body daily, spectacularly

rendered through the small violence of loss. If nothing

else, learn this: You are not broken, but rearranged.
