One More Production

this is my last day
on the continent
how sunlight tastes
like sweet wine

this production comes to an end
our sun turns nova  burning rivers
and seas into super heated-gasses
leaving nothing but char behind

lonely is it
to know
what’s here today
will be gone tomorrow

it all makes for
a spectacular show
some seek safety
in Gaias’ basements

others seek out
earths roof
perhaps for a better
zen-ful view

stadiums swell with
last ditch faith

the colosseum fills
with friendly masses

china’s great wall
besets the devoted

all beside who believe
hope to be pious

when life’s breath fills
our bellows one last time
with too-perfect-for-breath
wafts of life

all we can do
is exhale collectively
at once
while life’s vine
shrivels in permanence
