The Road Ahead

“Given the above trends, we feel that the world’s overall fertility rate will fall to replacement rate by 2025. In other words, reproductively speaking, our species will no longer be expanding”

– Sanjeev Sanyal


i laid out plans

imagined places –


the darkness of deep

space or supernovas

humans might explore


before I knew the value

of a self-indulgence –


rooted in the distance

between stars


traveling without a Fitbit

or the road ahead….


we gave up making

love, sometime ago


i don’t know why.
