Here we’re allowed*

Here we're
            alive.

Here we are as we love & complain,
orgasm & menstruate;
vomit & piss & waste our hate
on the smallest of things.

Here we are
            with or without
mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters;

comrades or enemies;
consumers or revolutionaries,*

distinctions that mean everything
& nothing
            because we
are only an accident upon accidents,
so improbable
as to constitute a miracle:

here we're alive
                to the glorious light;

your life is not a cage, a stage
or a performance,
                it's an accident.

You're alive

            then you will die.

So laugh until you burst.
