Today’s Reason to Love the Humans

Today’s Reason to Love the Humans

They are vain selfish obtuse
They shimmer with holy light so hard it hurts their eyes
And love each other helplessly stupidly beautifully.

They each get exactly one life
And every day they remember
and forget
and remember.

–Julie Goldberg, 2013
