NEEDING TO KNOW

Sure that one day he’d live on Mars,
the boy David discarded much
of the knowledge of Earth.
Why travel with luggage
one does not need?

I, on the other hand,
sure that Earth is my home,
cannot know too many things.
I carry with me every where I go
my bags of wind, and leaves, and bones.
