when this darkness with teeth
decides to mutate
into a virus communicable
via air
which is
an evolutionary inevitability

we will see it
cure the obesity epidemic
in our country

human bug bombs will drop
from the militarized skies
over infected zones
as freely
as an october tree
sheds its walnuts

a futile effort to stop
the contagion

come to think of it
it will cure
with gaia’s fire


save one junkie cockroach
who’ll still be watchin’
a sons of anarchy marathon
and bootin’
black tar heroin
