Ouroboros




Everything is consumed—eaten—converted.
Surely it would be more equitable, more just,
for the converted, too, to share in, to partake of,
the energy generated from conversion?
Is the important thing that life makes energy
to continue making energy or simply that
it makes it? Do we attribute motive to necessity?
If energy can't be created or destroyed,
why are we so obsessed with moving it around?
