sleep comes to gestating spring night

1 Million frogs
10 Million crickets
100 Million little rain drops bombing
the billions of blades of thirsty grass
threatened by dew-drinking mosses that will
replace the well-manicured lawns defying
our evolving climate.

starfish melting.
Blue whales
beaching up on shores to barf up a couple hundred kilos of cheap, convenient plastic.

Polar bears
vanishing
like arctic
ice
caps, we are
happily chirping
with chickadees
when the morning comes.

Buckle up tight and secure the oxygen mask to your face as demonstrated.
Prepare for final descent.
