Climate Change


I never thought to ask

When hearing Noah’s story—

Distracted by the judgement

And condemnation

By the threat and the fear

By the challenge of cubits and living logistics

By the selective paired salvation

In impossibly cramped quarters

Waiting for the run off to dry land

Dazzled by the rainbow’s light and promise....


I should have thought to ask about the water––

Where did it all come from, enough to cover the earth?

And, having covered everything, where did it go?
