Science News

 

I write in quiet, almost

in secret, based

on a news story about

our arctic ice

 

we have less of it now

because the Earth

is warmed

 

in response,

there will be cloud cover

widening to blanket

all our works and

worlds,

 

which will then be

colder, the frigid air

of a new ice age

that, in

fact, we will

have ushered  in

 

front seats to

a winter’s theatre;

 

is nature vengeful, we

might ask—and

we may not live

to know,

 

which is why I like to

keep it silent,

as it really shouldn’t

know our

 

plans consorting newly

with

the cosmos;

 

nature there and

here—I

am certain they send

messages to

each other,

 

while we float on

unrest

inside the heavens
