Heaven

Heaven is sanitized 
Whitewashed waifs
Ethereal unlike we

What of me who is ground
Who communes with soil
Its unregulated purity 
I can never be angel

Are there any drums in heaven?
No? Only trumpets and harps?
No sitar? No balafon? Any throat singing? 
Or do those have no space in your heaven?
