Loving the Planet

Breathing

Revolution:
ending racism;
ending violence;
ending inequality.
What if we could begin to breathe?

Holes

Coal;
petroleum;
natural gas;
stop killing us;
stop raping the Earth.

Post-Pandemic

Shifting focus;
shifting strategy;
revolutionary solidarity;
responsible at last;
conscious at last.
From oil to soil;
from despair to hope;
from individual to shared;
from representative to direct;
from profitable to sustainable.
Beyond capitalism:
what had to be done,
was ultimately done.

Coronations

Deadly travels
and a new virus;
fragmented habitats
and a new host;
upside down
and inside out;
locking down
and holding out;
death and suffering,
but most of all,
a struggle for
substantial equality
and ecological sustainability.

Death Cages

Airbags, safety belts,
and navigation systems;
comfortable cars everywhere.
Where can I buy a new one?
Barriers, air pollution,
and impervious surfaces;
habitat destruction everywhere.
Where have the species gone?
Death cages;
more death cages;
even more death cages;
death cages everywhere.
Where do the roads end?

Earth Decade

In solidarity with all species:
suddenly we realize that
we depend on you,
that it is time
to heal the rifts;
time for rebellion
and time for revolution;
time for human emancipation
and time for ecological recovery;
time for long-term thinking
and time for solidarity;
a planet somewhere
and a decade later ...

Rebels;
emancipators;
social individuals;
radical democrats;
ecological creators;
united revolutionaries;
self-mediating human beings;
associated reproducers of sustainability.
