The Future of Work

When I think about the daily grind of Nine to Five. I remember sitting in my office chair As a recent graduate. Updating my Myspace profile and Trying to complete Minesweeper, Because even though I had finished All Of my tasks – I could not leave the office Until the clock struck Five. Like some … Read more

A Hidden Trace

Beneath the pristine peaks and snow-capped mounds, Lie records of our past and future selves.   A precious commodity lying dormant, Safe from prying eyes and probing minds.   Locked up in overlapping, concentric circles Of mutually enticing atmospheric destruction.   As we carefully peel away the surging layers, These chemical catacombs reveal their secrets. … Read more

Driving Stress

As distant rumblings pierce pastoral air, Each roaming frog recoils without a bound; Mechanical vibrations beat the ground, And conjure up strange feelings of despair.   These noises that have caught them unaware, Combine to disconcert and to confound; As distant rumblings pierce pastoral air, Each roaming frog recoils without a bound.   But stress … Read more

The Deadly Rains

Within the arid heart of shifting sands, A swathe of ancient microbes team with life; When gluts of unseen rainfall drench these lands, They promise sweet refreshment from their strife. Yet these unbidden floods conceal a knife, With which to slay these citizens through shock; And where these hardy natives once ran rife, The landscape … Read more

To overcome the horrors we can’t name, We must become exposed to what might be; In dealing with this enervating shame, We need to fight the … Read more

Records of our Future Past

Across the dusty plains of southwest lands, An empty dish lies buried in the sands; With taps turned off to nature’s moist supply, As climates change the basin starts to dry.   Within the hellish bowels of holy caves, Lie imprints of misplaced and ancient waves; Our excavated past can tell us why, As climates … Read more

A Dusty Eviction

Within the grimy creases of our home, Lurk microbes poised and floating in the dust; A sullied sign that we are not alone.   We treat these scrounging tenants with disgust, Yet most of them just want to co-exist; To which our incensed manners seem unjust.   By letting sunlight stream into their midst, We … Read more

A (Mentally) Healthy Diet

Our mental health is complex and obscure, There is no simple truth for how we feel; Depression does not have a catch-all cure, But can we swallow comfort from a meal? The fatty acids of Omega three, Are found in fish and help to fight despair; Omega six in food does not agree With building … Read more
