dead zones

in the forecast
embed the soil and oceans
the great ice sheet in greenland
turns away
and shrinks
surgical masks have replaced lungs

bankers and their fossils
have generously
offered up the latest gizmo
(rope)
for all of us to hang
don't take it

the cumulative wealth process
has concentrated carbon to diamonds
to gold
to money
to junk bonds
to social collapse

the declining labor participation rate
(for decades)
is the only good news
redistribute the wealth
(guarantee a livable annual income for everyone)
or put your head back in the sand

the tide will do the rest
