33. Poetry by Carla Stein

Brocken Specters

metal birds skril
pre-recorded melodies
the day turns

eyes awake to
YInMn blue horizons

five-toed feet
press terraformed soil
a cold star watches

low clouds hang above
machine-groomed hills

solarized leaves
pump oxygen in
predictable doses

ecomodernist reflections
mirror plutocratic souls

Carla Stein
