As beautiful

As dangerous

As nature

Suppose our conduct natural, as our beating sun   
affected perhaps as any / creature subjected to
emittance of radiation, more contamination

Drones find our proximity / to the ant, and others
burrowing, largely absent our attention and
little mind of our presence / except occasional
run-ins, hunts, or culls; self-preservation or thrill

Choose an adventure, each a distinct take
our involvement: learning like animals albeit
different, separate: kind—at times; also like
them in their / environmental state / occupied

Such poetry persists, beyond boundaries of time
which window this is—whether others exist—remains
mysterious: the question of our age.

    1. I’m definitely concerned with construction of verse, as a writing practice I enjoy. Yes, I’d say this is very much an attempt at “everyday along the way” versification, your comment is appreciated. Thank you

      1. Excuse my obtuseness…what I was trying to say, convey… hurray! Was how well constructed and thought out this poem was… not the everyday sashay subject matter… but as my own poems often attest… my attempts at irony often thud…

  1. Not a thud, a prompt for me. Being not my vocation but only something I enjoy, it’s all such practice. Very much took your comment as a compliment constructive, appreciated
