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, invisible,

Unknowable, defied.

Energy evaporated, 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 10.27.2012
