Ruining our health, let alone the planet


We’re vaping all day long and choking during alternate-day Zooms

We’re inhaling nitrous oxide in Birmingham UK parks and falling out through neurological bottoms.

How about playing Frisbee or badminton, or rolling in the grass.

What we offer as palliatives at the end of days — freeing one from bone-crushing pain —

Does not release psychic pain or boredom in less potent formulations.

Life is pain and joy and else.
