Track Name: Tar Sands
What a beautiful disease
to be standing small
against glacial pace
erased in days

Tailings reflect perfect black skies
skin graft hill tops
sewn our seeds
in craters septic

Scratch through skin permafrost

What a beautiful view
horizon spent upturned
in the slumbering
pan across the plains

Scrawl our names
seen from satellite
in the vastest scratch
the slow turn of the earth

Scratch through skin permafrost
