In Our Back Yard

Reading The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History
by Elizabeth Kolbert. Past mass extinctions and now

the sixth. Frogs and toads, myriad amphibians in

Gone in an evolutionary flash.

Toad tadpoles in our pond were just developing

racoons? Drowning? I know I am responsible
somehow. NIMB, the warning close to home.
