Dissemination:

if only i’d studied limnology
known the risks before the vows
you struck your claim
eutrophication initiated
your selfish need transfigured me
into a closed hydrologic system
an endorheic basin

Diverting:

my watershed confined
by the mountains of your entitlement
playas expanding, vanishing profunda
no outflow, what am i?
minerals deposit as diversity wanes

Diametric:

tiny nourishments i praised
rain evaporating away
soon i accepted my fate
until it felt natural to be so small
initiating ecological shifts
this dwindling pool reflects you well

Dissecting:

photic volume decreased
remiss in loving me
as you tamed those wilds
beyond the littoral zone
that so invaded your mind
undermined your control

Diallage:

this lake is a dry salt bed
alkali flats expanding
hypoxic initiators
steal all the oxygen

Divorce:

dying, i wound up in the sky,
far from you
