Extinction Checklist

1 November 2016

Count the lost:

those species
living only in stones.

Species
of a savage past
who held no power
in their habitat

to forbid

the building of a dam.
The scenery that
can scarcely repress the dead.

Check
their frequent disappearances.

Want to find
a way
to help

them cross

the harsh
black river to oblivion

where even the memory
of a time

when a thing
would fight back

to save its life

falls away.
