BAD SMELL
(12/18/18)


slash

burn

rip
noxious fluids

solids

gases
from the
earth

process them

spill them

leak them

poisoning
the soil

clouding
the waters

irradiating
the air

perhaps
pollution

toxic waste

defoliation

are our
evolutionary
paths

forcing us
to mutate

to evacuate

to propel
our species
onward

upward

or straight
back
into the ground

to do
some leaking
of our
own
