Love Survives

as a Syrian wedding
 or Palestinian birth  
despite hopelessness—    
   
it outlives politics: Brexit,    
  impeachment, deceit    
human ignorance—    
   
withstands genocide    
   of speciesism, tribal rites      
and planet Earth—    
   
Love survives    
  war and death    
   
—such as words    
  you cannot erase     
 
 
~
