I’d compare our enlightenment

more to sentient incandescence:


hungry coals, dislodged

from eons of hibernation

at the will of humans left

even hungrier, resourceful.


They’ve no limbs to be

properly predatory, no

motivation unless struck

by the right combination

of copper and electrons.


That is how you, too,

function. To be free

and fiery takes bodies

planetary and boisterous


the ability to erupt

at their own

lethal discretion


against all of our heated pleas

considering itself insecticide


chopping mountaintops for firewood

or boiling oceans away in the name

of culinary arts and sanitation.

Hello, fellow bundle of nerves and flesh! I'm a simple little being who's half-poet, half-scientist, and all gelatinous chaos. Sort of like an illogical marshmallow. If you'd like to learn more, please seek out the "First Impressions" page. Thank you for the visit, bundle friend.
