a found poem via facebook pics

polar skeletons

wander the thin ice

soon a drowning doom.

droughts

and elephants die;

dry meat in the sands

for scavengers.

in venice,

the aqua alta higher

than the rubber boots

usually worn;

waist high now

w/ sewage,

pieces of lives,

history,

culture rotting

but wait

a rich tourist

gets a louis vitton bargain

manages to hold the shopping bag

above water,

they will count their possessions

as together we all rot.
