The Way Of Things

Things start out simple, plain,

Get more complex.

All things start out minus blame,

Get more corrupt:

[It is] the way of things.


Non-beings, beings,

Gases, minerals, to stones

To seas become-an-earth

With complex life forms:



Shells carbonate and calcium;

The oldest animal

That swam, then crawled,

That walked, then talked → become-the-us!


Take note and make a list:

Life, rocks so meshed, entwisted

They transformed the whole: this planet.

Smut to hut to trade and product;

Industry and change of climate

(As we’re doing now, this minute)


Down to up and down again!

A long way either way. But then,

It is the way of things.
