Carbon World

what is carbon?
is it a type of bug?
or a big country fair?
a forest with lots of trees?
or a tube of toothpaste?
is carbon animal?
vegetable? mineral?
what does carbon do?
does it do anything?
or is it what it is?

carbon is
solace in the early morning
bugs and grass and you
oil manipulated in multiways
energy and matter to support life
except in new orleans
where life is hardly a matter
