The Salvage

The highest aim of the human heart
is disgraced by culture’s constrictions,
cramped, choked,
swallowed whole by the indulgers
in conspicuous consumption,
exposed as the
obscene, obtuse, obsessives
who unleash more lessons than learn.
Pilfer from their own storehouse
until poor in spirit
rail against the cruelty of life,
condemn themselves to dire deprivation,
banished, bankrupt, wrecked
barren bounty.

The native hungry hearken
to emulate the madness,
multiplying insult against
cashiered compassion’s glimmer.
Their ceiling is the floor
of the examined,
human heart owner,
amply nourished,
Universe bartering
with soul revenue
of accrued wisdom,
love’s generosity,
solvent of all
spiritual debt-
