Dodging the Fate of the Morbid Fossil.

Quench my curiosity.
Smother my terror.
Defy my pessimism.
Nurture my dwindling hope.

Millions of years of human evolution,
still blind enough despite the weight of history
as we approach the precipice.

Going forward need
not mean succumbing
to the law of gravity.
Put mind to the matter.

Consider aerodynamics.
Flight. Bridge building.

The high of free fall
is wondrous, but the ground
cuts it short and the impact crater,
no matter how profound,

will only serve as a cautionary tale
for those to come,
to evolve or arrive
after our
stupid suicide.
