Apocalyptic poems, posted every m-f.

buffalo

when words become obsolete
we won’t discard them, no
instead chopping them and twisting them,
fashioning names out of the things we no longer have –
we’ll call this place turmeric
call your baby hope

our language is a buffalo,
the future brings with it scarcity
and we must use everything we’ve got.
