I sit inside
A somber reflection
on a busy intersection.
A smoking man jaywalks.
A pregnant woman waddles.
An 18-wheeler speeds through the yellow light.
Cars swarm around the naked, quivering trees;
left growing in this paved over world.
The humans have won.
and bus stops.
These are all temporary victories in nature's infinity.
The Earth has come down with a bad case of People.
