In Order To Sustain

On the edge of darkness
A desert flower is scolded burnt.
And a palm leaf is torn apart,
By a living, breeding, blue macaw’s claw.

It is their crucifix …
This thuggish, world:
That delights in their—
Immoveable, situation!

They even build defences to survive.
And shield; themselves—
In order to sustain,
Their agonies … crucifixion …

But deep down their roots offer endless hope.
