even without the additives

even the most submissive
will wake up
smelling the gas

but there is no shortcut
or endless scenario
or grand bargain
on the pathway
where extinction looms
yet the valley remains
still
cold
lonely

when did geoengineering
become anything other
than dark holes from snake oil hucksters
& when will universities become unapologetic
when will middle ground
be seen for what it is
death
nonetheless

methane shifts & finds the fractures
the casing & tank & human failures
leaving a burned-off poison
on our collective tongue
garbling our speech in so many words
the money follows the accomplices
we'd be fools to think otherwise
