Of the earth

Don’t say, “In the time I have left on earth”!

 

Say instead that I am on earth,

and ever will be.

 

Say instead that you are earth and of the earth.

 

This is your heaven, your mother—this is your home!

 

There is no where else to be but this incubator blue

and this grave that is grey.
