i

it’s a big machine
this civilization
gears turn
governments
shape society’s
collapse

ii

I flashed horror
at the dance at the morgue
sacks of flesh torn and wobbled
bent lopsided smothered
by the ancient “ahor”
I swallowed my screams
and recited Wolfe’s mantras
while clown pranksters
told incoherent jokes
by the light of
acid washed
campfires

iii

the conjured
reality of Harari’s
Sapiens made fire
invented the wheel
sought shelter
in the rocks
invoked God
found Buddha
sitting under
a tree

iv

south
west
central
a white glow
of feathery stars
darken a swirling
van Gogh sky
a coyote dances
teasing scorpions
spins dust trails
nips and snarls
teeth bared
in dog
play

v

artifacts
in deserted dwellings
of pueblos at Four Corners
the Inca in Machu Picchu
Khmer of Angkor Wat
and Easter Island
Moai suffered
climate change

vi

industrial
revolution’s
infinite orgy of energy
gasoline weed trimmers
coal fired suburban
steam punk
technology
force
survivors
to migrate
dwell in mud huts
watch African sunsets
under thatched roofs
row Polynesian
longboats
on opal
seas

southwest central
a glow of white feathery stars
light a van Gogh sky

a coyote dances with scorpions
spins dust trails as he nips and snarls
teeth bared in dog play

Dance in the Morgue

Infinite Energy

industrial
revolution’s
infinite energy
of electric cars
gasoline weed trimmers
coal fired suburban
steam punk
technology
forces survivors
to dwell in mud huts
watch African sunsets
under smog darkened skies
row Polynesian longboats
on seas of floating
litter
