From the Series: Lexicon for an Anthropocene Yet Unseen
What if we killed off all of our first-born?
What if we cordoned off 50 percent of the world from us; you take that half, we take this half?
What if we offer up a unicorn for sacrifice?
What if we let wolves live?
Yours with hope, and great good will,
Amy Dandelion Maddock
