by José Wan Díaz

I want neither
Heaven nor Nirvana;
I just want a place
where the herds
can graze unafraid,
where the human animal
hates the thought
of consuming flesh.

I want to go where riches
don’t actually mean money,
to a country where the poor
and the wealthy are only legend.

I don’t want to live
in the mythical land
flowing with milk and honey;
I want to live in a real realm
of peace and calm,
a place where bread
doesn’t taste
like the sweat
of my fellow man.
