earth day haiku 2001
The polar caps are melting
Actually, vacations don't really get me thinking about poetry as much as they get me thinking about the meaning of place and what it means to come from one place as opposed to another. There's a quote in the latest issue of Adbusters that summed it up nicely, I think:
When I returned from vacation, I found that I had received the latest issue of Adbusters in the mail.
In time, I also found out that the latest issue of Adbusters doesn't have one proper article in it. Instead, Adbusters has a collage of photos, quotes, and ideas as a means to challenge our modern ideas of place, architecture, nature, and imagination.
As I have stated before, Adbusters is the only magazine I know that has faith that art can convey a message just as well as written argument.
in the place where you live
This Adbusters also comes with an envelope of seeds so you can do some guerrilla gardening of your own. It's a true Earth Day issue.
