The Bonds of Gravity

IMG_4660

I am ultimately tethered to you, Earth.  Rooted by gravity.  Handcuffed to a resource I simultaneously crave and exploit.

In the bondage of gravitational pull, I am the sadist, extinguishing entire species, poisoning the groundwater, coaxing oil IMG_4418from your secret spaces.  Submit to me.

I burn and bruise, strip and shatter.  Our consummation is consumption.  I use you.  I consume you, ripping the flesh from your mountains, pulling the very minerals from your bones.

IMG_4410You weep and I lap up the salt from your tears.

Forgive me, my lover.  Forgive me.
