38 (who?)
The Wasteland

Planet Earth is dead.
The Biospheres are pristine,
bright recollections.

He breaks ships for cash
but has never flown above
the smog and rusting.

They revolve like moons
with a hundred white faces.
Billions look up.

The Garden of Eden

"Let's feed the Earthlings,"
cries a human. She wonders
at speciation.

Extinct flowers bloom.
The day cycle ends and she
watches the dome split.

The constellations
were renamed by the Founders.
She finds Orion.

The Dark Star

He collects spare parts,
amasses a ship in months,
then learns to pilot.

"There's no need for a
license to kill, kill, kill, kill,
the unfortunate."

She sees him coming,
but says nothing. The glass
erupts to soundless.


They watch from the ground
and color televisions.
Some cheer. Some sicken.

"And measures have been
taken to ensure no more
Spheres will be damaged."

The borders tighten.
Someone starves in Coal City.
Planet Earth is dead.

It's always open season with no fee for attacking the differentfromus/me.

Trigonometry has proven to be nearly the most useful to me part of mathematics, even spherical trigonometry. Simple algebra accounts for the rest.

Quadratic equations must be the most useless thing ever invented. A dull toy.
