Seven years of fat

Exposing the fossils

of a hundred million years

to combustion

we turn them into an infrastructure

that can only be supported

by an infinite supply

 

without turning our minds

to the concept

of the finite nature

of everything

 

sure

nature may

in one hundred million years more

recreate what it created

one hundre million years afore

but not before

 

60 years until concrete cancer

eats a building

that took 30000 years of energy to create

5 years until the obsolescence

built into an ipad

destroys another 2000 years

 

Should we really be basing our productivity

Our survivability and collective ingenuity

on the ability

to burn fossil fuels

into substitutability
