From the Depths

seeds sown

there is something about that

i think

something about ground
                                 weed
                                 fallow
something about a
dearth of earth
good earth
rich earth

i think

or perhaps it was
                              only
be fruitful and multiply

i do not know

but
i think

i think
           pain
like vodka
is
The Great Leveller

i think
           pain
makes us  One
all of us
               One
in a way that
                       pleasure
never can

at least
              not
until pleasure turns its
other cheek, the one marked
                                                    pain
as it always does
always

then
i think

i think we find ourselves
                                           again
in each others’ eyes
in each others’
                          pain
filled eyes

and
i think

i think that lachrymose echo
holds
our only hope
our only hope
our only
               Hope
