The End

and when the last bird
falls from the sky
and the last fish drowns
when the waves throw its body up --
stiff, open-mouthed...
look into its eye.
into its glassy bead
observe the indifferent stare
you -- are the bare
and lone remnant
left upon the planet.
Time closes in on you
Chisels your sanity into fear
and leaves you no luxury
of going insane --
like some king lear
