History of the World as a Day

Time to recite: 30 seconds


Built from stardust in the deep cold dark
Then watered in ages under a furious sun
at long last life, then breath & green across the land

Spreading & growing, spreading & growing,
The tendrils of life cradle the world,

Its heights & its depths to the uttermost reach.
Then the sparks in the night meet a mirror & blaze
A hand finds a stick, sprinkles ochre, then seed.

Killing & eating, a lemming-like spread
Piling up bodies in the stinking land

Earth turns to dust, night to day, miles to minutes
Midnight again,
We choose dawn or the dark.
