Remorse

ckopel:

In a dying world of dying
children playing on
beaches lost away into
nothingness I stare back into
the abyss as it encloses
while others stare down at
screens galaxies come and go like
words whispered in the wind across
the plain to a friend the deer perk
their ears and pull up their heads
thunder rains down on sweet
summer scents while all the pretty
horses wade in the creek not
wondering why this is all so

a pronghorn buck, Antilocapra americana, pursues a rival male during mating season.
