26 March 1930 ā€“ 17 January 2001 / New York City, New York

Humanity

What simple profundities
What profound simplicities
To sit down among the trees
and breathe with them
in murmur brool and breeze ā€”

who pollute the sky
with heavens
the below with hells

Well, humankind,

and so my son

but neither of us
will believe
