5 Census


Why can't I
Touch them
Know them
Feel them all?
House the retinas
Of their bones?
Feel the name
On your Grandmother's
Tombstone?
Why can't we
Butter our bread
With each other's marrow?
Hatch the dreams
From each
Unborn sparrow?
Match the mothers
Of the wild
And feral?
Hollow the trees
Of our childhood peril?
Why can't I
Touch them
Know them
Feel them all?
