this disease

We
are newly formed,
dust
and debris from stars,
from
sunshine, we invade and take over
occupy earth
with large forebrains, we
tool and toil, we
monopolize life, displace
and denude…like a fungus, a disease
we spread
and we don’t know anything
but we know life
a habitual rampage toward
living
while the universe ages slightly
we age rapidly
owning what was once
un-ownable
land
sea
air
we occupy earth
until we’ve run the course
hoping…hoping we can
devise define demand
ourselves into
space
where another
earth
awaits
this disease.
