when a living creature

has an unnatural state

inflicted upon its existence

things rarely turn out well

for the specimen

.

war

starvation

drought

intoxication

concentration camps

laboratory foods

pharmaceutical cultures

imprisonment

unhappy marriage

industrialization

slavery

religion

Los Angeles International Airport

and

the  digital imposition

that is

the internet

.

yet we can’t stop meddling

with our world

.

when what remains

of humanity

can no longer see the sun

.

we will blame pollution

and the microchip

.

yet it is our own

irreverent

parasitic instincts

.

too late to admit

human psychology

was the harbinger

of our own death
