GloPoWriMo #6 || Brought to you by: me being a fed up environmental sciences researcher studying for finals!

the drill, our sword

metal

pierces

with a clang

with a slice

with a gush of

blood,

ore,

methane melting out of the earth

we are mosquitoes

eating our own mother

Margaret Atwood

told us so

and yet

we stabbed our gods anyway

feasting

on the black blood

we drained from the soil

suffocating ourselves

under a cloud of

convenience

we watch our own

bodies

deteriorate

and blame it on

the starving poor

wanting to live.
