Humanity: a species that survives by burning things
and each other.
Smoke in my eyes
so I take them out and put them away
so I decommission my legs
so I shut down my tongue
But I forget my ears, Harmony.
Sing, put the tears back into our eyes, bang
the eyes back into our heads, call
the tongues back into our mouths, thrum
the bones back into our legs
We won’t be propped up: stand up.
Walk, see, cry,
ask out loud: can we worship
wind, sea, sun
and each other?
