Poetry: Heath Brougher

April is the month of poetry
and of the great “illimitably earth”—
but wait a tic… we must reremind ourselves 
every newborn second that we are,
at all times bound by our human perceptions 
that have worked lacerations into the Earth 
in order to fit and fill the manipulation of our eyes and ears—
a rending of the vale, an over-personification of nature.
We may see life abloom but, in Truth, 
 April = birth and death as it always has—
I guess we just write about the life part more.
