This poem by Lynna Odel is used as an epigraph for Eric Holthaus’s new book on climate change. Beautiful.

then let me feel you
happy and safe
under my chin.

If this will drown
or

Really, I Feel Fine.

Buzzard for company on my morning walk.

Is this roadkill connoisseur following me?

I’m not saying it’s a sign, but it might be best if I avoid standing still or lying down today.
