28. A worm and no man

He said to them, “You are from below; I am from above; you are of this world; I am not of this world. I told you that you would die in your sins, for you will die in your sins unless you believe that I am he.” —John 8:23–24

Underground is safer. Cozy. Bedded
in our own cool litter, undetected.
Rising our vibrations may be heard
by devils, robins’ ears bent to the ground.
Exposed we may be shriven in the sun.
Many are called to light, but few are chosen.
Underground is safer.
