Mountain Sun

Poisons from air and

Hormones from cows;

Carbon from oceans

And algae from lakes;

Sin from the priesthood

And racism from schools;

Glitches from computers

And infections from cells;


Still the mountain sun rises,


Undiluted. Absolute. Pure.

No need to be detoxified.

A fragrance rinsing the vapor 

of our moral stains once more.
