The image of this humanity is devastating.
I am washed away in the sweeping sadness of it.
Just sitting in my car in the walmart parking lot.
It’s like watching crabs scuttle and claw over fetid debris on the shore
It’s the lowest rung,
with nearly the least capacity.
Mewling , sweatily pawing
Made by slugs,
with even less capacity.
and oh yeah,
I am right here with them,
pretending I am not looking in the mirror.
How is it that our souls long for more, but put up with so much less?
Very powerful piece, thank you for sharing it!
