it should be    some comfort
that history
has come to you      by accident

trees tapping the window
fear   hunger   work
you did not earn it
                        the house
                                           now gone
      the angry man       the closet
                                                     for hiding

       did you deserve it         as you do not
                                      deserve           the rain in winter
                   the dim gray sun           or dry cave

       it is only              what you were born to
                  so take it                unblinking
                                         say its name

                                   that you walk    this path
because this      is the way
                                       things happen
               in the world
