I’m binding my poetry into books. I’ve got two books so far of 300 poems. My books of the next 300 will be done soon. I’m working all day tomorrow, so it’ll have to wait until I get home. I love my velobind machine.
I had forgotten that back in 2011, when I would write a poem, I might write a one page meditation about the poem.
Reading them again is like meeting myself a second time. Some feelings are the same, some are less familiar.
One quote I found:
“The world is big, but it isn’t so big that we can’t hurt it.”
All of the shouting about climate change misses the point. We’re hurting our planet. The exact mechanism doesn’t really matter.
Animals are suffering. Plants are suffering. The oceans are suffering. The land is suffering. The air is suffering. People are suffering.
The planet is suffering and we’re to blame.
