babel death star

by kirk ramdath

god deciphered the binary code for infinity and vanished
leaving us to quarrel
in this paradise of flesh and death
leaving us to shoot bullets into the sky

chalk outlines
formulas upon a blackboard
instantaneous death
in a series of equations

peel back the skin of the earth
the soft parts are eaten
by time and worms
nothing remains but bones

bridges of imagination
last longer than bridges of stone
but even they will crumble
and be washed out to sea

elsewhere, herds of caribou flee
crows scatter with plans to return
but one day they will do as the buffalo have done
they will flee the earth
as breath flees the body
until not even bones remain
