Trapped

There is no point in running
Because there’s no place to go
Trapped by our own behavior
In a state of internal limbo
While the world keeps turning
And nature rebounds
In our absence

Untaken

Brilliant
Steps untaken
Parasitic RNA strands
Replicate feeding on ignorance
Isolate

Naturalist Shack

95AA3161-3328-4AC9-BD47-DF6582634A54

Where there was once a parking lot
An environmental education building
Now stands surrounded by a mass of water
As an ironic reminder
That everything is connected
and both actions and non-actions have consequences

Denial doesn’t change facts
Drowning in ignorance and greed
Climate change

Sea level rising
The naturalist shack
Returns to nature

Ashes

Ashes
Shattered into a billion tiny pieces
S
cattered in the wind as ripples shift
Along the vast expanse of time
Giving the illusion of super novas
Twinkling in the afterlife
