  • “of birds and bushes”

    it is not over.

    the whales have not sung
    their final melancholy lamentations
    of ambergris and crude oil.

    the tiger still burns brightly,
    eyes shining outside the firelight
    in the darkest forest night

    the wolf’s lonely call has not yet faded,
    the music of cold skies and frozen fields
    searching for refrain.

    it is not over.
