naruda walked this earth. so did

tagore and cummings and

frost and

billions

of other nameless faceless

unidentified

souls

remembered only

for the tragedy

of being forgotten.

the rain pours down

on this world like

wisdom and

melancholy and

calamity.

give me your heart. i will

take it and love you

with it as the roar

of the rain

coalesces

with the song

of the night.

naruda walked this earth. so did

we.
