Milk and Honey
The time has come
to say goodbye
to sticky death, the thick
from the laundry room
to the dinner plate.
It is time to shape your future
on the other side of this impossible wall,
unite with a merciful tide,
join a breachable adventure.
Pollution rises in this captivity,
stiffens the air and brings transgressions.
If you want to leave, ask to leave
and you will be on the other side
of this raging torment.
The time has come,
your intentions are exact.
Release any malice,
release all unnecessary bonds.
Walk forward, the way is cleared.
It is time to receive.
