Ouroboros

Advent Poems Day Sixteen

Combustion

Engines turn

Gases ignite

We move

Propelled by our own ingenuity

Straight roads

Into straight cities

Carbon life forms

Inside carbon emitting machines

Who gives birth to whom?

An ouroboros ideology

We consume ourselves

That endless lineal ancestral transformation of genetic matter

Dust to dust

Assumed

Resumed

Regenerated

Along artificial straight lines

Which will eventually bend

Like nature insists

Buckle and bend

Despite our efforts

As Gaia tamers
