NaPoWriMo Day 23 2017

Day 23:
From Chris: “Write a poem revealing an ugly truth.”

every day is Earth Day
which is why I am sad

every day is Earth Day
even after the Earth forgets us

every day is Earth Day
but there is no human day

there is no us day
human beings
are not necessary
sometimes
not wanted

all of our oils
plastics
radiation
and chemical spills

will outlast us
but Earth
will adapt
life
will adapt

or perish

if that is the plan

if there is a plan

and if there is a plan
we
human beings
aren’t a part of it

***

Happy Writing!
