Unusual Man
for Joseph Hermann

he has a philanthropic side
disparate sides of life, within him


this life, this world
as if in need of chains
to connect two sides

chains, without which,
this earth we’re on, spinning
would break apart

garment without seams
which Christ wore
what held it together

what holds together who
imagines we are, they are
so very different
because of languages, races

because of the layers
which classes make
when it’s all one cake,
one birthday party
