(Philosophical) Argument


human eyes see chaos,
a home falling apart,
swarms, swells, fumes, fire
– homeostasis lost –
of which they are the cause,


man is not the yardstick,
not the only species
that lives wrapped around this sphere
– floating, entangled, always
depending on its gifts.


lie down – voluntary,
under statuesque trees,
under crumbling bridges,
in deep viridian dusk
or indigo depths.
