Descending

                                                      Descending 


                                                    After the rape,
                                                    earth's surface trembles
                                                    giving birth to dying trees.
                                                    Grasping for a straw,
                                                    breathing death's face 
                                                    of poison air.
                                                    Rivers flow motionless
                                                    and fish swell and bloat.
                                                    The sun shifts,
                                                    swallowed by the moon.    
                                                    Clouds hang with depression,
                                                    on open doors of electric signs 
                                                    flashing phobia.
                                                    Man’s ambition              
                                                    Eats nuclear waste.
                                                    Barren lands wed drought 
                                                    to tomorrow's future, 
                                                    crushed under natures foot.
