South of the Wall

Somebody, with blood in your veins, show me the way south, south of the wall, to the real world.  There is the place where pain is raw.

wall_400Somebody, with fire in your soul, show me the way south, south of the wall, to the real world.  There is the place where longing is naked.

Somebody show me the way to the real world.  The place where hope is dead; where hope is immortal.  Even to the last rag, polluted drop, and last grain of ruined corn, something unacknowledged clings to life.  When nights turn cold, tourists depart; the ineffable remains.  Breathless, the darkness of hope.

Children are hungry south of the wall.  Still, they are children; they play.  Mothers worry in reality.  But they have courage to smile and sing ancient songs to sooth the fretting tears of infants.  Fathers are weary.  Both weakness and despair peer through their eyes.  These are simple men, as simple as Jean Millet’s Man With a Hoe.  Simple, and doggedly strong.  With sun up comes the new day, with familiar toil in dry fiends and the drought smell of earth.

Somebody who knows the radical difference between reality and illusion, show me the freedom train to the real world.  I am reclaiming my heart from the paradise of lies.
