Renting the Penthouse to the Tower of Babel

The stars were once wrenched

from the fabric of this universe

tossed into an intense kiln heat

burning till they settled into ourselves

though now we don’t know how

where when we came from

some take to religion

some take to the moon

some make the moon their religion

through periods, times and Ramadans

all thrive on this lunar tide

dancing into the Sea of Tranquility

swimming backstrokes to infinity

still language keeps us from

being we

when we were we and we were this close to divinity.
