The World Is Still…   (for Stephen M. Meyer)

The world is still
not yet over

though we devour it
and fill it up

Holes here
some places entirely gone

Collapsed livingness

A perishable record
deep from within us

A wildness tamed
into a ghostly sleep

This is not a prophecy

This is obviously
the world clothed

in a double mantle
