NaPoWriMo Day 24: Interference

Interference

We pride ourselves on science

Rational thought

Methodology

And sound research

Yet there is so much mystery in nature

We cannot outsmart it

Yet we seek to control it

To the point where

It’s not nature anymore

Sterilized

Humanized

And urbanized

Let nature be natural

Wild

Free

And unpredictable

NaPoWriMo Day 18: Catastrophe

This poem is somewhat inspired by Elizabeth Kolbert’s book, Field Notes from a Catastrophe.

Catastrophe

Climate stability led us to thrive

In a world that was once volatile and unfriendly

Our species was thriving, striving, always wanting more

Advancing to the point where

We are wreaking havoc on the planet

The emissions of our technological empire

Keep the temperatures rising steadily

Into climate chaos

Climate instability is may cause our demise
