every other week

every other week
at sun worship time
the heavy, rose-stomping creature
tear us into fertilizer
for the snobbish trees
delaying us in our plans
to reach God.

every other week
our fight to touch Sol is defeated
beginning over again the next Godrise
twenty-six times a year
we fall helpless,
our sunstretch dead
and yet we grow.
