a leaf will fall. water will flow.
face will wrinkle. the hands will shake.
the sun will shine. the stars will shine.
red blood will flow. strong bones will dry.
the urge to accrue surprises,
to what end is life with an end
if one continues to be a
well, when there’s no longer water?
the heart aches? allow tears to flow,
if a desert rebels, rain falls,
it is not yours to choose, time will,
if the bloc is done, let them leave.
