Window Television

Green walls,
green drink,
wood table,
wood seat.

I sit inside
looking outside.
A somber reflection
on a busy intersection.

Window television.

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.

Billboards,
Benches,
Bistros,
and bus stops.

These are all temporary victories in nature's infinity.

Human virus.
The Earth has come down with a bad case of People.
