Our Shared Humanity

Standard

We walking body bags
Of blood so flush with fluids
Rush in wash of rivers
Running round and round
We burst these banks
Too easily
We break the bond of membranes
Stretch to thin translucence
Weeps of wet to tear apart
Too readily
The red of rapids gape before
The wounded self to spill
Too open wide
To other eyes
Can see
Fragility
The single name
That we
The infinitely
Vulnerable
The lost and seeking
Fallible
In folly of our thinking
So invincible
We share this single name
We are the ones
Who fall…..
