mass extinction

Max Henninger


they’re removing the space between now                        

& now there’ll be no more exploring if this

continues. on learning our language

is two thirds dead we resort to frag-

ments. like pre-socratic philosophers

w/ a bad phone line whales or bats

whose sonar is failing.
