    White glow melts life
    freezes shadow, twisted bottle
    the birth of the transistor
    and then.

    wild animals become divinely rare
    their habitats wild homes are soft earth & tree
    cannot flee before the bulldozer concrete
    flame and smoke desert where only wheat

    The spider was there when we moved in
    basking on a sunlit bit of wall
    waving its front legs in greeting.
