calm body of water during golden hour

We learned that water could die
cut off from its source
isolated in the name of progress
at the mercy of engineered dams
we watched the skies fill
a toxic cloud blooming
as sea levels dropped
we felt our lungs tighten
seeking the air amid the poison
we bore the fruit of our own misdeeds
never a thought for tomorrow
we learned that water could die
at the hands of the deadliest killer:
mankind – Caroline A. Slee
