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
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
