We must avoid fable, myth, the easier routes to understanding through anthropomorphism. Faced with the crisis of extinction, there is no time for such storytelling.

Many symbols began to emerge from the work we received: the hummingbird, the firebird, the horrifying interplay of fire, flood, and draught.
We are in conversation with the strange and haunting winds.
The wildfires that result in the “skittish sleep of standing horses.”
The extinction of species.
The haunting disappearance of birdsong.
We are in conversation with thoughts we might even entertain on the worst of days, like “a bright purifying asteroid” arriving as immediate catastrophe.
