Apart - Poem by Barry Middleton

can we escape what separates
we are just a part of nature

can we accept we are one race
out of Africa or out of Eden

how did Cain come to hate
except to please an angry god

and how do gods see murder
smiling on their cruel creation

full of rage and ready to kill
or indifferent as the wind

and do they never think of us
are they looking to other stars

where in the inkling of an atom
there stirs a new mythology

where some kinder law is found
to heal the wounds of worlds

Topic(s) of this poem: race, separation, universe, eden, healing, indifference
