Bestiary for the End Times

Sur tous les insectes (Tout le monde)
            pour Henri Michaux
Over all the insects
                                    the stubble
            the corn stubble
the wheat
the hungry harvest
                        of cellophane and glass
the smiling reaper
the bearded, balding earth
a cloud of small arrogances
whipped into storm
a perfect fury of dried, chipped
            cracked and broken
faces of small, tiny
cracked, broken
