Fruit Basket for Extinction

             By now our pent-up happiness
will have landed on a porch. Yours, it turns out.
You, last domino, wake at the end of our run on earth:

our organs floating in buckets.

             It’s all down to you. Damn you. So go on.

our chi, our china. Carbonize the attics of passion
projects we’ve left unlabeled. Forgive us.
We have so easily.
