Seeing is believing, they say.
Flip that global warming switch.
Again. You’ll see, they say.
I read that
meat production warms the plant.
So I stopped eating red meat,
but I would love a thick steak
instead of this boiled lifeless egg
and bread white and soft as cotton.
bringing a child into an incinerator.
No trees in the fields,
nowhere for crows to escape us.
Will that child bring
living things into this incinerator.
It’s a starry night,
the night is full of bright stars,
all wanting to fall.
