we are the lucky ones

by jhon baker

– in part for Richard Dawkins

 

I don’t enjoy needed tears of rejuvenation

or the venerability of emotional transendance

 

the heart pumps

from ventricle to ventricle

through fifty miles of capillaries

blood that offers life

and one day must stop cold

 

and we are the lucky ones

so said

for we are here when so many

never were
