The Ocean Awaits Our Denouement

We have blown off nuclear
bombs in our oceans,
because no one will ever
notice what we have done
under cover of the ocean’s
surface absorbing,
life-giving sun.
We have blown all the
water-life’s cover
but now the ocean is, like
all life, struggling to recover
from what we have done.
The sea, the land, the air —
all waiting for us to be gone,
so they can all then
breathe free and avoid humanity’s
inevitable denouement.
