Too Many Tocsins

Too Many Tocsins

She’s bitterly in-
ated, having
imbibed our poison-
ous concoctions
for far too long.

 Now she belches
flash fires, sneezes
gusts of debris & dust,
spews “super-storm”
tempests & tsunamis
and melts mountains
into rivers of mud. 

Her permafrost
is waxing temporary
as her ice caps liquefy
lifting up sea level in
perhaps a healthy attempt
to wash us all away.

This could be
our own personal
catechism of cataclysm,
and (I’m just wondering)
exactly how many tocsins
will it take
before we wake?
