the persistence of industry

make things we must. grow things we must.
in truth, we do not make or grow enough to keep
the hands of willing workers thus engaged.

and though we know the awful consequence of waste,
of littering the earth with what we leave in heaps and stacks,
we wade more deeply in the river of denial,

as if, by magick, poison’s charmed away
to some dark place.
as if, through our great power

earth will cleanse itself of our disgrace.
