the sea in 2012

is not a 19th century pirate sea-no sailing ships
apart from privitized yachts
Historic as harbors and calligraphy
telegrams,Morse Code and Titanic steamships
the sea we know is Sargasso Plastic

the earth we walk in 2012
is not the Crusades,nor jihad
more random explosions in emergent countries
civilians flower bombs in Public Squares
Our earth is mass graveyards

the air we breathe in 2012
car exhausted,jet engines,factory smoke
toxic chemical cancers creating art attacks
you can paint with the air your lungs
Recycled,retired,restless hurricanes

the fire Chenobyl,Fukoshima,Siberia,Dresden
Billion times brighter than decaying suns
Split atoms like families /burn bones radiation
The fire next time is tomorrow
