All Species, Every One 2012

All Species, Every One


All species, every one;

Feeding, playing, sickening:

All wanting to survive

Though stricken, weakened,

Fighting not to dive

Into the depths of death

Where synonym and adjective

Lack strength enough

To clarify;

Energy that was divisible,


Unknowable, defied

And disappeared;

To leave a motionless, decaying form

From ant to elephant: small to gigantic.

Then there’s me, the un-romantic

Unaccepting critic.


All Species, Every One 11.17.2012

Birth, Death &In Between II; Nature Of & In Reality;
