7-25 Grasped

Grasped

 

What—or Who—

grasps this chimp-brained, soul-saturated sapiens?

 

When Andromeda swathes it starry arms

in Terra’s neighborhood,

five billion years hence?

 

When a dispatcher calls

about that cherished soul

at the emergency room?

 

When a Hebrew,

arms taut as a nailed animal hide,

cradles a robber?
