Save A Soul

J.B. Drori

They say,
“He who saves a soul
Saves the world.”

But then Orion bellowed,
Venus burst apart.
And they said, “Pray.”

Jupiter crushed a moon.
The Milky Way retracted,
Its black hole growing.

I heard tears flowing.
An old man weeping,
Now, ninety years,

For a nine year boy
Roaming the stars,
Looking for the world.
