Metabolism

I think we are born

From eons,

The folds of God’s

robe as little bits of

thread that come into

the world naturally frayed.

because after all it has been

a journey and neither you or I

knew how long it took to get here

before we were born.

For all we know we had already

been out past the stars that

We look up to at 2am because

some crap happened to us while

trying to be decent folk.

To not take a beating so hard

And to stay in love because

the maiming is going to happen

anyway, and there is no use

in being surprised at pain

or the sight of blood because

overtime it becomes part of

our metabolism or the way we

look to up to God to acknowledge

that we are frayed.
