Giants

built our rocketships
refined from mountain ore
with all our orchestrated
Chemistry
fashioned metal skins
to keep
our water from
the absolute chill
of space

fueled by ancestral
skeletons
reduced the forests to
a cinder pile
and fed papyri
to our new
machines

the surface is on fire
moldspores on the surface
turning red
