the face in your god’s mirror
grew old
when the world was new
he who invoked glittering children within the shadows
to what end?

you humanity,
poisoned the earth
species died out while you grew fat
on their deaths
your god
grew old
while the world changed by your sick hand
humanity, In whose eyes
you think you find god
How many times
did the face of god, in your mirror
turn aside

I refuse to become like you
I am
not human
