Progression

Wildlife,
endless.   Here
is the bison,
lost to us when
longbows departed.
I see it rifled
dead,
buried. Achilea
eventually is grown,
or killed; élan
returns when man,
murdering being,
noticing the lack,
overcorrects. Ex-
environmentalist,
too little  for
sinners like us,
underhanded. Re
supply, re-support.
All heaths dead.

    Just catching
    way up,
    here–somehow
    I missed this
    one earlier,
    whence I etcetera.

    This poem of yours is ingenious, I think.
    Keep experimenting–you do well with it.
    Best,
    Chris
