they might be humans

leopold offers words of wisdom: ‘robinson’s injunction to tristam may well be applied, at this juncture, to homo sapiens as a species in geological time:

whether you will or not
you are a king, tristam, for you are one
of the time-tested few that leave the world,
when they are gone, not the same as it was.
mark what you leave.’

(A Sand County Almanac, 261). the crystal ball to us is murky. still, the evidence–biologic, genetic, even geologic–suggests that we should be more cautious, that we should mark what we leave.
