"Perhaps A Freedom Blessing" by Joe DiMino

Nothing is ever entirely gone—
The substance of a body
Transformed; spirit on
The loose—perhaps a freedom
Blessing. Ah! Yes! I forgot:
You do not believe in spirit—
Nor the Tooth Fairy, and
Certainly not
Santa Claus—though you 
Would not deprive children
Of holidays and presents, a
Loving gesture. You do
Believe in love, don’t you?
If the answer is yes, I promise
No embarrassing questions
Like asking to be shown
A Science-place—
For one heart resembles another,
Whether saint
Or sinner, tissues
Bear no witness
To the person inside….
