FOR THE ANIMALS

For the Animals

And those who expected lightning and thunder

Are disappointed.

And those who expected signs and archangels’ trumps

Do not believe it is happening now.

As long as the sun and the moon are above,

As long as the bumblebee visits a rose,

As long as rosy infants are born

No one believes it is happening now.

Czeslaw Milosz

As my friend, Palma, wrote, “We're watching the earth change before our eyes. The truth is, it wasn't always a habitable globe for creatures like us and it makes no promise to remain so as we pull the levers and change the systems that sustain us.” No doubt this is so, I don’t know, but we must assist the helpless, as best we can, this is a common duty.
