The World Is Not The Earth Valentine

The world is useful
As a picture of the soul
But why can’t it say
What’s buried in its
Sacred heart of hearts
Why must it act out
This history of longing
To find what it loves
Cannot be caught
In lies of owning
And all the while
The earth looks on
In wonderment and terror
Like a dog about
To be beaten again
