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.
Click-n-ship
party-in-a-bag,
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
alright.
