Opened my browser to find that more oil had leaked all over Strathcona County, Alberta... the same day, I started reading George Monbiot's "Feral". This one's definitely about climate change, OK?!



you can stay
silent watching as the country wears away
you can sigh
make yourself heard as the silent things will die

you can tell me of the things you saw
at the National Museum
you can tell me of the origin of man down to the minute

in the midst of a thicket standing taller than a man
i was lost for a minute turning pebbles into sand

i was thinking of the passing of the places that i loved
every field and forest rock and hill that i knew would slowly end

because of us and our need to get around and do or die
because of oil, because of greed and because metal rules the sky

we can laugh or sit and watch the news but do we ever resist
take a walk and feel the pulsing life in things that do exist

field and flood, rocks hills and plains and cedar standing tall
sticky mud, bitumen that in our eyes eclipses all
