Yo Future Creatures

A poem from a Succulent Words participant on the theme of “What would you tell the creatures who inherit earth after humans are extinct?”


Yo Future Creatures


Do you notice

the waste

the excess

the single point of focus

the gluttony

the remains of our mistakes?



can you see

the kindness

the ways we tried to stretch ourselves

the struggle to be aware

and take care

of this spinning sphere that holds you now?


– Pati Boyle
