THE FOOD OF WORMS . . .
Filed under: General
Posted by: @ 8:24 am

Some extinctions are sweet!

See the Poetry Journal, these mute and dumb
bundles of dead trees and toxic lead;

Or the obese Symphony Orchestra, the me’s
much-will-have-more, limited only
by the slow speed of living sound;

And ah yes, the Church and the Pope, this hocus
pocus of a thousand years of damnation and sin
that even a Swiss Guard and gowns of
Disney white cannot hide.

I say, good riddance to them all. This is how the Earth
heals, as the mistakes we make in good faith become
the happy food of worms.
