Emotions are the canal, bridge that  makes or unmakes humanity. Two of them are progressive; hope and love. 

1.  Hope is the tender that allows us to legally pursue life .

i have come to purchase yours, sun

here’s a cheque of thank you for being beautiful
allow me to be a merchant of honour

and the grave is a metaphor
for an infinite absence

Before your eyes

Maybe you are on opiates

But this nothing

This gaping nothing
