Poem: Afterthought

Afterthought (2019)

How beautiful it is to have a job of inspecting flowers.

To know that you are without even trying,

assisting a species.

As an afterthought of generating a life mix of vitality.

How brave it is to have a job of protecting.

To know that you are the barrier,

assisting a species.

As an afterthought of losing your life.

How pleasing it is to have a job of warming the air.

To know that you are moving together,

assisting your brethren.

As an afterthought they are assisting you.

How tender it is to nurture the young,

To know you are providing,

assisting your species.

As an afterthought you watch them then,

inspect the flowers.
