Belief

The important thing is to
not die,
though you have fuck-all
control over that
some times ...
so be content
to exist --
right --
for however long --
not as long as the great pine
certainly --
but longer than the moth
that burns itself out
in light
like answering a call of
some kind
like from a heaven
recruiting for the choir
of voices
singing
Inna God I Believe-a
or wanna
anyway.
