20/20 vision

A poem for the coming decade.

text reads: 

20/20 Vision

When the Earth is heating rapidly

And the air is thick with accusations 

When oceans fill with plastic & empty of fish 

When people are stacked at borders like refuse 

As trash is shipped freely around the world 

When The Machine has become so huge it extracts joy

From the very marrow of you bones 


That this planet survived ice age & fire

That the mountains are gods

That everything works in cycles 

That endings precede beginning 

That no dream is meaningless 

That every creation has value 

That your lungs still expand

That your heart still beats

& with that we will evolve 

& with that we will heal
