Fresh Start

By Ryan Lugalia Hollon

It is over.

Your game playing

& avoidance tactics.

Our industrial charades

& pretenses at supremacy.

The earth is returning.

Teaching us her slow

but unstoppable ways.

One melted glacier at a time.

We are left googling —

“How to create a new world?”

As the oceans fill our living rooms.
