Each year more animals depart

Each year more animals depart.
only pets and carcasses remain,
and the carcasses living or dead
are from birth
ineluctably and invisibly
turned into meat.
"I believe it's completely feasible,"
said Bob Rust
of Iowa University,
"to specifically design
an animal for hamburger."

the animals of the poor
die with the poor
from protein insufficiency.

Now that they have gone
it is their endurance we miss.
unlike the tree
the river or the cloud
the animals had eyes
and in their glance
was permanence.

JOHN BERGER ("They Are The Last")
