the mistake of watching a nature documentary before bed by Maureen Kingston

the tundra is melting : the permafrost is slipping

………Ring-a-round a rosie,

its icy handcuffs : prisoners once confined now riot

……….A pocket full of posies,

for early release : bacteria by the billions : a gravid

………Ashes! Ashes!

fury : pestis unbound : southbound : bound for glory

………We all fall down.
