Raw Deal

Untitled, 2015, by Alexandr Paraskiw

Raw Deal

Crumbling world are you the last of the crumbling worlds
In all visions of how our planet pulls itself apart
there is an overwhelming lack of one necessity
that we have used up Like water Like oxygen
A ground behaving like the ground of our ancestors
being good underfoot In watching this again
it isn’t that we are sending out a warning
Maybe we are making peace with knowing that
this place is mortal like us What if that is why
we were brought together
When this era of greenness goes away will any of
my yet-unborn future ancestors be alive
