Human

by David Andrés Alíx

It is a fragile vessel sacrificed on the altar

Of the insidious delicateness required to revive her,

But which seems beyond all lumbering humanness.

Yet the tribute is offered over and over

Insisting that we are competent heart holders,

Knowing that these urges exist, to be expressed, by only us.
