Claims Upon the Innocent

It seems we are forever falling,
Falling into empty channels
Where the darkness thickens and consumes us.

Who are we to know our fate?
Was it emptiness that birthed us—
Made us howl with fear at the life thus given?

Were we plants or animals, sealife or landlife?

[Hata Bildir]
