The End is Nigh

Di Brandt does the apocalyptic tone so well and in such tiny space.

Diamond rivers, uranium valleys,
petroleum oceans.

         from Dog days in Maribor / Anti (electric) ghazals
Night and day, season after season, the predatory universe
exercises its tender heart: eating and being eaten, each with its
particular grace. The beaver becoming pond, the field mouse
becoming sky.

         from Horizon on fire
Both from Now You Care

And so for day 1641
