2013 July 17 “In Stages,” Copyright 2013 Doug Stuber

In stages
small, significant,
his life changes due,
this time, to weather,
unstoppable pollution,

gone sense of nature
coupled with
ninety percent pain,
gap between rich and

poor, with the
tiny few at the
top destroying it
all to keep the stock
markets rolling. This young man

just figured out how
crawdads move;
he understands the
importance of food,
how nature sustains

even these
ugly abuses. Words can’t
explain the
forty year gap in
our youths, and “outside”

culture of
children versus inside, cell
phone chat, how
PC lifestyle means
no revolution.
