Gaunt Great Grays


Broiling Arctic
Avarice bankers,
O’ Great Ones,
Climate firestorms
Marine bottom heatwaves
Sea ice, krill, crustaceans
Going, going, gone!

Twelve thousand five-hundred
North Pacific Apocalypses,
Seven decimating years,
Frackin’ fossil fuel HEAT
Macerated at sea,
Fading Gray calls
Haunting soundlessness!
