The London Magazine - - BENJAMIN ALESHIRE -

We are the door­way yawn­ing

through which this world’s last ti­gress will exit.

But we will also feed you & we will set your na­tion free,

should you ever want it to be free. Don’t deny us—you dis­em­bow­elled

whole moun­tain ranges to forge us—just think of that.

(Or think of starlight: the uni­verse rid­dled by our leav­ing, & what shines through it)
