Science and Nature


Undermining a river

at our own peril.

Seducing our destruction,

touching the terrible.

Elevating the excess

of our errors.

Bedding down

quite comfortably

in the bed

of the succubus.

The stag remains nimble.

The fish,

so quick,

and slick.

The fighter,

must be mobile,


to manage the distance.

But, you and I

walk into every trap,

and when it springs shut,

we play the victim.

As if anyone is listening to us.

There are repercussions

for every thought.

We are not immune

to being caught

by science and nature.
