it’s not like
viruses & cancers
and all the rest
are trying to
kill you;
it just works out
that way.
biology, etc.
are you
trying to destroy
our only planet home
with your
natural behavior:
driving
shopping
eating
working
playing
using?
all that you rely on
for your good life?
just because you’re not
trying to wipe out
all life on earth
doesn’t mean
your daily behaviors
won’t do exactly that.
go ask
the covid virus
grandma just
sucked down
her throat
when you 
hugged her
on you
way home
from the beach.
