Apathy Is Not Your Blankie: This Should Scare You

April 22, 2017

Bangladesh drowns
while California sinks:
the simultaneous fear of
too much water and
not enough.

Ocean acidity will
triple by 2100, another
break in the marine food
chain, causing both the
subsistence and existence of your
grandchildren to be uncertain.

Between manufactured beach
fronts in Nigeria and artificial
islands in the South China Sea,
how can water survive the
assaults made on it?

There is no singular
incident, only a labyrinth of
interconnected self-induced
wounds that collapse with
the Tibetan glaciers, but
we sit idly by.

This is a rallying cry:
it’s not just your
grandchildren, it’s you.
Bangladesh is drowning
and California is sinking.

Water is intrinsically
entangled with the political:
who gets it, who does not,
and the very knowledge of its
molecular makeup.
