off the vine

Here’s the truth of things:

we didn’t grow together
on a vine

like seven billion grapes
each just the same
each sublime

in some
there was a rot
in some
a cancer
others:
a thickening
a clot

but never for anyone
an answer

we all have just this:
a world to move through
and a book of blank pages
to move by.
