Pigeon.

imposed role of harbinger
carrying word of the sentence home
silent symbol of resolution
nothing will not ever end
not always the powerful who can survive

the pigeon flies staring outward
what they see is that what we cannot
avian witness to broad perspective
lugubrious, stoic, but never alone

sapien will farcically self-exterminate
spending time marveling at itself, marveling at nothing
laboriously constructing machines chasing obsolescence
biding time with fruitless endeavors and genocide

arrogance is as transparent as sleeping lucidity
infinity hourglass all moments kairos will erase
nothing proving people were ever even here
