The Event (Horizon)

by Gregg Dotoli

In 19th century
Eco-wreck and Engine
hatch carbon Black_swan
from a metallic dirtyshell
offering gifts of production
and horsepower
by 21st century
we stew in hot truth
degrees/megastorms/drought/flood
records breaking like cheap toys
denial melts away
as Arctic poles shrink
Biota fell ill
Biota is dying
conjure death
as we suffer
as we join Biota
