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.

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.
