1 Poem by Wayne-Daniel Berard

 The Brazen Age

The time loop
swings backwards in autumn
the green of renewable
leafing reverts to the
September red of iron
then to October bronze
soon we resee the fall
of the Brazen Age
all becomes stone and ice
we huddle in nouveau
caves the rest of the
living world grateful
for our absence
for temporary asylum
from us
