TO BE TRUE HUMAN

TO BE TRUE HUMAN

I will prophecize
and I encourage you to do so, too
but wait… before you do it

Let’s think about what we want to see
& let’s prophecize that…

I prophecize
blooms
flowers springing open
gentle velvet unfolding
sproinging normal seasons
budding ad infinitum
until the sun’s old age
consumes
this planet

I prophecize the return
of robust populations of bees
tending zest
from pistol to stamen
love nuggets
pollen accreting on
hairy working legs

I prophecize
restoration of habitat, species–
curating every grain and drop
via mind, lab, hand, even nanobot
connecting communities of roaming
fish, fowl, ruminant corridors ensured
wide open plains, too
deserts turned to prairie
fertilized to forest footfall
wolves making more tall growing
trimming just enough deer

I prophecize awareness
educated holds
securing true truth
the aggregate eye unblinding
empire will have to get dressed
saying will have to say what it
purports to be and be that–
the competition of the ego,
the striving to be seen best
transforming baser nature
to cooperation
relief, rest, all of us
heaved atop the true top:
the infinite plateau
for the most successful,
which is, innately,
the gentlest
