Maybe, if you haven’t noticed,

all we as a planet

are merging out of

the value of keeping up with

the Joneses, a material culture

of speed, of separateness

of a shallow consciousness.

 

Those are problematic values

of an archaic past of polluted failures.

 

We are now valuing the planet

our relationship with nature

workability, sustainability,

the skills of living together,

of creating a livable future,

of finding beauty in our lives.

And that past, that “normal”

 is unfortunately

or fortunately

dead and gone.
