Meteor

by David Andrés Alíx

One second you are here

The next you are gone

A meteor

Lighting the stratosphere

This place belongs to you

You belong here

You own everyone

Within these barriers

They are the blanket you toted when young

Wringing out the nursery rhyme fears

Unflinching and unchanged they remain

Give yourself to the void within these walls

Which distill a rare love from outside

Siphoned, filtered, reduced

Shaken down, concentrated compactly

Cease from remaining other-earthly

But rather allow yourself to be

Cherished and beloved

A tree planted firmly

Everlastingly
