Critical Littering

April 1, 2015

´╗┐´╗┐

Garbage Sonnet 2

 

My curiosity embellishes

All the detritus of modern living

Seeing waste & litter replenishes

My connection to this great world’s giving

 

Soberly I realize that life’s junk

Isn’t made for my edification

But In productions’ full caves I spelunk

I’m mesmerized by litter’s invention

 

Thank you god for these moments with garbage

Your detritus sings me a secret song

Though litter’s capitalism’s carnage

It’s also the charged tea leaves divining

 

The litter we stream behind us in space

Is the comet’s tail: our visible trace

Winter’s Filthy Finish

March 13, 2015

Sometime in April under some black crust

This winter’s last filthy snow’ll liquidate 

Spring’s flowers will obscure a world at rust

At snow’s death & decay we’ll celebrate´╗┐

Except to the enforcers/
Of status matters/

Like the snow on a park bench/
Silently and cold/

Like children in a playground/
Joyfully and loud/
#haiku

1c. Faith accumulates/
When the faithful sit calmly/
Expecting nothing/

1d. Faith accumulates/
When the faithful sit calmly/
Expecting something/

Requires acceptance of facts/
Unpalatable/

(Thoughts on Society’s & Individuals’ need for “Social Microclimates.”)

14. Exclusivity/
Describes a community/
That’s special to you/
#haiku

15. Your community/
Is a “Loophole of Retreat”/
Wherein you matter/
#haiku

16. We describe outside/
To create a safe inside/
For our own values/
#haiku

17a. Exclusive language/
Is rarely grammatical/
It’s about changing/
#haiku

17b. Exclusive language/
Is rarely grammatical/
It’s evolution/
#haiku

18. Haughty Poverty’s/
Got its exclusivity/
To protect its pride/
#haiku

19. Power creates norms/
Which we must all sanctify/
Or reject power/
#haiku

20. There is nothing wrong/
Human exclusivity:/
Ego protection/
#haiku

21. Overvaluing/
The culture of the wealthy/
Keeps poor people poor/
#haiku

22. Wealth sanctifies some/
Exclusivity above/
Other people’s worlds/
#haiku

23. Valuing culture/
Simply because it’s wealthy/
Needlessly harms us/
#haiku

24. This sycophancy/
Toady to already rich/
Lacks real dignity/
#haiku

25. Celebrate cultures/
That you do not understand/
To improve yourself/

39c. Contemplating life/
I wander past and future/
Sharpening my “now”/
#haiku

40. Revisiting “pasts”/
I alloy mistakes and grace/
To rebuild myself/

42. G_d’s not a dealer/
Dealing off the deck’s bottom/
For his chosen few/

43. Life’s more like Lotto:/
The winner really loses/
(each moment’s a prize)/

God’s a Constant

God is a constant/
So speaketh the gutter, through/
Detritus of Man/
