Poem: Water Wins










Water wins.

After all our best efforts
   toward good or evil,

after humans, as a species,
have fallen away into dust,

the wind, water, and
fire of the earth will
continue their intricate dance.

Wood rots,
   Iron rusts,
    Gold sinks back into the loam,
Decay dismantles the rest.

Whether we die
   fighting,
      crying, or
        singing in an open field…

the water wins.
