Scandinavian poetry from the Anthropocene

and so
the world of many man slowly faded
from crowded streets
of cold and grim
back to sparkling
dreamlike
canopy

Not engulfed in russet flames
But soaked in
natures velvet
fists
and nursery

The compassion
of furry beasts
and abstract worn out
blankets
of vibrant dust
and silenced colors

the sirens song
with sprouts from
Owls
and eagles

Their gratitude

Spread atop our emptied cities
the warming sun
of this world
with walls that long
last crumble

Beneath the tiger's child
that
roars again,
at the ghosts
and ruins
of absent man

Where did they go
the
wayward sapiens

unanswered questions
but no one cares

music of the day
Wherein Lies continue by Slipknot
