You speak of this dying world what is interesting about that is how cleaning the world up takes money. The money to clear the plastic bottles out of your water ways and ocean. That is to pay for the barges and boats scooping and cleaning; sweeping our highways, picking up garbage in the cities. We also have bought certain kinds of furnaces and stacks for businesses to keep the air clean, and pay highway patrolmen to pull cars over to ticket a polluter to fix his car. We put one kind of trash in one bin and plastics and metals in another to be picked up and reused. The company pays people a few pennies a can to bring them in which people do. Now there is a movement to buy your own reusable straws to slow down the plastics in the garbage. You know what this means, Capitalism.KO: "I have been thinking about the absurdity of this age and its delusional mythos a lot lately, Phil. What does it mean to succeed on an increasingly brutal, unequal, unjust and dying world? To attain the hollow grandeur and lucre promised by capitalist mythology?".........From a dialog between Ken Orphan and Phil Rockstroh; "Bearing witness at aeons end: The wound becomes the tomb"
Another collaborative dialogue with Phil Rockstroh. PR: Kenn, this question haunts me: Is it still possible, amid constant inundation by the mass and social media simulacrum, for literature, poetry…kennorphan.com
While we are conscious of our trash and omissions China and others are not. Shall we start a war with China and sanction them for not cleaning up their plastic straws? "Hey! No more "bend-ies" until you clean up what you used!"
Answer: "We sip cups. Not 'bend-ies'. You need neck adjustment. I-EEEE!"
