God’s Eyes Were Watching Theirs – a poem by Cody Rukasin

God’s Eyes Were Watching Theirs

God said:

they cannot be saved;
black, white, blue, grey

nature should preserve itself
elsewhere,

since peace cannot be attained,
since war cannot be arraigned…

He took an axe to the Tree, and
as it fell, every color caught
on a single bough, on an edge
sharper than any wisdom.
