We Are Fields Before Each Other

We Are Fields Before Each Other


by St. Thomas Aquinas

How is it they live for eons in such harmony–
the billions of stars–

when most men can barely go a minute
without declaring war in their mind against someone they know.

There are wars where no one marches with a flag,
though that does not keep casualties
from mounting.

Our hearts irrigate the earth.
We are fields before
each other.

How can we live in harmony?
First we need to know

we are all madly in love
with the same
