From the 2007 chapbook "Breathe"

Ten Thousand Waves

Its taken ten thousand years
Of conspiring civilization
Just to reach a stable population
And now in less than a hundred
Weve fast forwarded another ten thousand
Into a futuristic cyber-droning reptilian world
Of microwaves, cars, tvs, gadgets in our ears,
Powered by burning smokestacks
That spew pollutants into the air
Changing the chemistry of the atmosphere
Of what took ten thousand years
To settle from the dust of volcanoes
And meteor showers raining from the heavens above
Before the continents were divided
When we were still one
When ten thousand waves crashed upon
One round shoreline.
Now theres too many coasts
And six billion waves
Crashing down
Pulling from the land
