The Human Experience
by Jonathan Beale
The human experience: that blown leaf
Dried and highly brittle – mist weights
Mist weights heavy.
The lost dreams of the chimera.
Facto-fiction – desire and wined
Up to fall and far – still
Shadowing the human experience
The pear tree orchestra
Making out, the still stars
Of every galaxy in every human experience.
