the way home

is as fraught with danger

as the paths leading

to new calamities

in the morphings of the world

oh all is pain dislocation and shame

here in the appointed hell of creation

and treacherous is the road we choose

for the heaven we imagine

and whatever the actual home in god

or big bang or black hole

or dark matter

nothing makes one sadder

than to miss it for our blinding tears
