Earnest is the rain, converging fronts
discordant euphony of water falling
submerges, drowns dreams all night
constant, faithful, abandoned child
weeping, seaís heating accelerates
manís greed increasingly manifest
nature reacts to heal itself, undo
abuse, self-replicating alienation
determinate meanings, mammon
refuses to understand: harmony
balance are essential to its survival.
Earnest was the rain, now silent, ended.
