Take the Earth Back – audio

Narrated by Iris the Barred Owl

Poem by Sara Bainter

We could take the earth back
self sustainable bubble communities
growing beans
in the front lawn
and buying thyme
with electric dirt bike rides
Why can’t we thrive
on drinking lemongrass tea
from mom’s potted plant garden
cured at 200 degrees
it sounds like a dream
one that could easily become reality
but we’re addicted to subsidies
bonanzas and glass ceilings
addictions we would need to ween
with gardens
and their tea and weeds
among other things
