Human ugly under 
blue sky and purple mountains, 
A man and all his imperfections. 
He is not desert violet light,  
Black velvet night. 
He is a smudge bleeding plain 
into Cerulean blue star light, 
arctic white. 
The earth demeaned 
by one more parasites.

One of those 
who claim dominion 
over all that is unimportant. 
Commerce a foible of man, 
a means to gain. 
To rule and so become 
a king of fools 
who rules over nothing.

Not the sky the sea or the air. 
Nor a fistful of golden sand, 
impossible to hold in a mortal hand, 
each grain infinitely more perfect 
than we can imagine.
