vermont poem 2018 #3

vermont poem 2018 #3

the august 5 2018 NYTimes Magazine
is devoted in its entirety to the species
homo sapiens killing itself off (along with
a lot of other species) I think in the near
future – I haven’t had the guts to read it
yet I know about coral reefs, greenland,
violent weather, etc etc and that we were
warned over twenty years ago that we had
ten years for significant action but if anyone
still doubts climate change they should be in
vermont this summer where temps have
reached unprecedented highs – 100 degrees
then plunging to low forties some nights
you need to bring out your longies to sleep
on the open porch – what will it be tomorrow?
the hawk owl we spotted the other day must
be really confused she is far out of her range
