there is no place
quite like the other

each valley
each plain
each mountain
each plateau

each
with its own
land forms
life forms
weather
and light

encased in a shared
halo of air

 

we are binding this earth in asphalt.

binding
and branding
we block the night sky
with our signs.

from
above
we look
like fire

 

spirit becoming

the gases
the stone
the life forms
the consciousness

we must build
on what has become,
not destroy it

The marketing
geekdom
will not rest
until every
inch of earth and sky
is covered
with corporate logos
like a NAS CAR:

This oak tree
is sponsored
by Viagra
Miller Lite
and Little Debbie

That cloud
by Marlboro
Nicoderm
and STP

This stream
by Jim Beam…
