Eco

At what point did
Destroying the planet
Become a competition
Between us and the sun?
With an astroid holding
The supporting role
We play our parts with
A greater vigour
Than Hamlet in Shakespeare,
We play to the end
Of the world.
We now find it easier
To imagine the end
Than we do
To imagine an end
To that which is responsible.
We can only surmise
That the end is something
We terribly desire.
To watch the calcine pyre
Coalesce into the void
And see inside it
Beauty.
