Tangled Skin
by Nevada Kerr

I fade into the thin air
And leave no trace
A displaced migrant from the city
Looking for a holy place
Neither profit nor production
Will colonize my race

I'm a wilderness regression
Eroding in your face
The collapse of civil nations
Privatizing ancestral space

As the disappearing species
Melt away in time
Poverty increases
Machines upload the mind
Under an artificial sun
A drought bloom hits its prime

Watch as I sketch your future
In a nebulous chalk outline
Identity theft left your soul bereft
Now your smiling reflection's mine
