Apologies to the Earth

Is it here I brought you to? This misery.

Greta knows.

The west coast burns, the east decimated by the virus,

Is there mercy for us? We who are most responsible for bringing

this calamity to the earth? Dare we ask for mercy?

Apologies to the Iroquois, Edmund Wilson wrote.

don’t bother they answered.

Apologies to Bangladesh, the tribes in Alaska,

islands in the Pacific being covered by ocean,

the Great Reef, dying, in heated waters.

Apologies to starving polar bears, rain forest lost,

life lost before even known by humans.

Apologies. Even though forgiveness is not possible.
