Magpie 38

Broken.













One day to breathe
the scent of earth,
One eternity to be it.

  6. Bend to smell those roses, pal,
    and embrace the dying bitch
    earth, for not long ago in the
    great scheme of things, we
    entities co-created this plane,
    and set it up as a classroom,
    life after life after life, and still
    we never learn.

  10. oh Stafford this was too sad
    no hope in these words
    only resignation
    death and that's it..
    ..ah..but you did make reference to eternity...
