That disposable life

Photo by Vanee

Did you know that
things don’t disappear
when you throw them away?
Nor people either.
Yes, out of sight
out of mind. I know
I used to live
that way too.
Consuming time without
savoring it. Discarding
relationships without
mending them.
easy open,
seasonal designs,
new, new, new,
more for me.
See me in the tropics.
See me on a glacier.
See me on a mountaintop.
See me looking
blissfully ignorant of the wake
of suffering I’m causing.
Not a minute to pause
our navel-gazing
to give more than we take
or clip our six-pack rings
to save the dolphins.
No worries.
All good.
You do you.
Every little thing’s
gonna be
