Four Sustained Stanzas

the categorical imperative of our time

kindness, compassion, simplicity

defiance of consumptive norms

local crafting

leaving the global economy adrift

 

defiance of consumptive norms

one cup, one bowl, one spoon

a cushion, a time, a space

to breath

 

leaving the global economy adrift

bartering or purchasing local goods and services

making do with what’s within 200 miles

taking staycations

spreading the wealth as far as

cottonwoods scatter seeds

 

kindness, compassion, simplicity

tis a gift to be present

to leave temptation to the advertisers

to eat neighborhood blackberry pie

the categorical imperative of our time.
