THE DARK


II

Behind the men holding rifles.
Beside the railroad tracks.
Dead buffalo in stacks

The Crow, no better,
drive bison over a cliff.

Where did we land
when we fell
from the grace of God?
Or are we still falling?

III

Did the downfall really begin
as the fruit juice dripped down her chin.
Eternally condemned to the original sin?
Eternally? Really?

No animal is aware of their own nakedness.
So goes the ultimate separation
between us and them
we were left alone
aware of our condition

BUT WHY?

IV

So we may know love

HERE’S THE JOKE

V

In order to know love
we must know hate
so goes the penultimate separation

Everything but everything divides along those lines
everything except one thing.
that one thing became imperceptible
as the pit of the fruit
hit the ground.

Where did we land
when we fell
from the grace of God?
Or are we still falling?
