Poem

The Earth is The Only One Telling The Truth

By Kelly Curry

I set the table

with a bounty of glory

for you

and yours.

Forever and Ever.

Organized dimensions of light

and sound juxtaposed proper celestial alignments

inside

a wondrous galaxy

to support your breath

in body

So you could play…

Forever and Ever

All you had to do was show up

And you

tyke like arrogance

mistaking your limited brain as the central processing unit

of dimensional reality,

took my gifts without thanks

squandering magic and

your own golden destinies.

Now you have awakened from the short dream of expansion and plastics play to the

nothingness of your

endeavors…

mean…futile…

destructive,

to seek once again

the glory of pure colostrum you suckled freely at my breasts,

the emerald forests

where my waist

and voluptuous belly

meet the slope of my firm,

round buttocks…

the diamond life

from between my hips,

richness inside minerals and stardust in clay

to find that I was and will always be

the only one telling the truth.

This time…

You

Will

Set the table for me.

Replenish what you have grabbed and taken and defiled

with strange, diseased thoughts

misfiled as manifest destiny.

Return my tongues

dissolved at the edge of bayonet, bullets, missiles, germ warfare, molestation, agressive attacks of silence that kills…

Rename this simpleton’s scenario, which has you actually believing you may own what

you are only borrowing.

Return the breath of life to the regions of my body that your expansions and silly experiments have rendered uninhabitable by so many of my children.

Return my dreamers to me.

Return my songs.

You, wayward, childish rascal.

You

return to me.

Return to me

so I may

love you

to wholeness

So I may

love you

to nourishment…again.

I am your Mother.

I am the Earth.

I have always been

the only one not lying.

I have always been

the only one telling the truth.
