caretakers of the pison river valley

having been
evicted
from the garden
of eden
but
given
a lease
on his environment
man
like
many renters
wreaked havoc
on his abode
plundering
and
wasting
its resources
but now
a few
have begun
to place
genes
and
seeds
into a frozen ark
hoping
that science
will save
some remnants
for
future tenants
while most
societal residents
still
fail
to see
that
their
frozen art
is
earth

board game…

fragmented promises
lie on the road
yesterday’s despairs
such fine confetti
for a parade
of fools
passing down
narrow cobblestoned alleys
of imagined liberties
to a destination
advertised by
online chatrooms
as the new eden
where free apples
are distributed
by secret police
for the consumption
of weary travellers
on this monopoly board
road to freedom
