sentient

April 16, 2014

Lions drown in a rare downpour
floating manes roar susurrations
leaving behind a note
Fireflies leave the light on
until power runs out
from steady to nothing
Rams find their inner lemming
rocks and horns strike
for one last spark
Fish from the deep deep
rocket towards the surface
a scaling disintegration
Spiders free fall unspooling
from an half-finished web
to the end of their line
Humans wrote themselves
off long ago
ago
