If I had the power of creation
Strength borrowed from the ether
And the imagination of Athena
I’ll make the world a patina
Of transparent gooey spaces
Especially the darkest side of man
That reflects man’s inhumanity to man,
Nature too – for we are one
With her, whether we choose to be
Or not, we are all of matter stock
Product of the same creation story.
If we knew, we’d be nicer
Don’t you think?
