This World

this world will not be healed wholly
it will be healed in pieces, slowly
and with three steps back each time

which will not be enough to save it

don’t try. be in it, say true words and
kind words and bracing and grateful words
and be in it. it is an insoluble problem

it is terminally beautiful
and where you must live
