They are. What we're becoming.

They are. What are we becoming?
It’s rote, I know. It’s rote.
It all bares my repeating. He wrote,

though not to me,
“The first prerequisite of defiling
a corpse is a corpse.”
And I thought, Of course.
We’ve become
experts in their making. And his point,

the point I didn’t think
needed making, not at this point,
again, yes, again,
yet again,
is how many we’re making.
We’re making them

without a second thought
or guess.
With an ease and a quickness,

and we’re finding them,
once made,
hard to be rid of, hard
not to accept
as ours, except
when we’ve become them.
