The Baths of Humanity

 

We bathe ourselves in water only
to bathe ourselves in blood.
Water removes the
grit and grime of everyday life-
What do we hope to cleanse
with blood?

Will streams of blood replenish and purify
the earth and ourselves as a spring rain?
Will lakes of steaming life,
reconcile past harms and future wrongdoings?
Do we bomb and invade-
justifying offenses by stealing life?

I do not know.
I follow and do.
