oil slick sludge chokes the throat of the bayou

coast guard uses dispersants, sub-atomic

killing beads ingested even by phytoplankton

nothing is spared

fury bubbles thick in chest, bitter crude

oily aftertaste

we all go the way of the dodo

lies and cover-ups, quick, kill the canary

the oil is GONE they say

emasculated motorists with monster trucks

swallow it hook line and sinker

but there's no fish anymore, nor krill

ocean floor might blow

suffocating birds, sea turtles,

viscous brown sludge-stink oil-covered

innocents,

gimme gimme

drill baby drill

stab the earth eight miles low

how low can you go

multiple stab wounds

looks fatal

rape her

take her cooling lubricant

shove filthy water in her wounds

temperature rising

pressure cooker steam shriek

gonna explode

shift the poles

blow us all off the axis

to kingdom come, no rapture

only slow suffering, death, outrage, grief

unrefined
