PROMPT: One Home

1
we dig for poison

we great many people,
sitting above the ground,
drills searching for the antidote for life
the antidote for life that was created from life,
life long before humans.

a cure for life

we can power our ships and cars and planes
by tapping into the lives
of our children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren

the cure for life is death

we dig for death

the antidote for life-
death-
created from death,
and when we burn it
we seal our fate
the way the fossil fuels
should have remained sealed into the ground

we dig for poison.

we dig for poison and await the day it finally overtakes us.
