every man is an island unto themselves &

every woman too---

every boy, every girl,

every teenager in the whole world &

even those on a ship to the

moon---

alone

alone

alone

alone &

mr. donne can’t refute that

oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium &

phosphorus,

make up 99 % of us &

while the other .85 % is comprised of potassium,

sulfur, sodium, chlorine & magnesium,

there’s no place in the leftover

trace elements,

to put his all-encompassing

romanticism---

no god,

no soul,

no jesus,

no allah,

abraham, or

muhammad &

as much as ya might want to

believe different,

there’s absolutely no evidence.
