When All Is Dust

[Here, in the penultimate sonnet of this corona, the Unknown Poet of the Third Galaxy brings, as is his wont, the themes of despair, distrust and even anti-spirit around to a confirmation of a trust in Reality that sees beyond not only the Abyss, but even the Void and negation of All]

13. When All is Dust

With the loss of our common humanity,
we lose the thing we need to know the truth.

Can you see without eyes with which to see,?
Or bite an apple without a single tooth?

Similarly, within the secret heart
is that, the only that with which we can
which yearns to know the start:

"Know the beginning and you will know the end!",
the Master said, he who planted the tree...

He who walked the path to the bitter end!

He who reveals that our common humanity
is closer to us than our closest dearest friend!

"When all is said and done and gone to dust,
what in all of this was worth your trust?"
