sonnet IV

This is where I return to the sky
Floating above bodies scattered about
The last thing here won't be ready to die
Maybe we'll get angry, mourn to a shout

Standing by the river, the waters rise
Sacred burials consumed everyday
Fires burn in our hearts, minds, and seeing eyes
Abundant life is now far and away

Close your eyes, the earth will have her vengeance
Close your eyes, your heart will turn to hot glass
Lava spat to crumbling land imminence
Dominant oceans swallow in one pass

Malignant plume of smokey corporate greed
Smoking life out of life that's almost free
