extinction

Welcome to the Anthropocene. conglomerations of nations united in efforts to ruin the foundations of a homestead that’s no longer green. made of oceans of salt that have never been clean since We had a say in creation. We burn the earth, apocalyptic cremation as an act of defiance, perfectly obscene. this is the epoch of learning to die, to go extinct, to go alone. how do We forgive ourselves for what We have become? this is the cracked facade of humanity that belies the sins for which We must atone. how do We forgive ourselves for what We have not become?
