earth: meaning, 3

We could already
be in heaven

We could already
be in hell

Those are
invented names,
anyway,

aren’t they?

If we called
this place
heaven,

would everyone
be happier?

If we called
this place
hell

would everyone think
“this isn’t so bad”?

Nonetheless,
this vast place
is home

Let us treat it
as such.
