And it is true, that if tomorrow
the oceans go dry
and the seas vaporize
like water in a pan,
I won’t know how to react.

I might scream,
I might hear my aunt scream
I might see my grandma rush
to the stove.
I might see my mother
rush to my grandma.
I might see them spill water
from the faucet
onto the pan on fire
While I stand still

still watching how the world reacts
as the oceans go dry
as the seas vaporize
and there isn’t a stove
nor water
to set the fire on Earth off.
