wild land set aside as recreation
holes in the earth set aside for the hauling out of "ore"
open oceans set a side for "fisheries" & "wind-farms"
our "being" what interrupts life for the sake
of our exceptionalism
but for the inter-ruption
nothing is gained in standing aside
not even house plant or dog can give
what might be ground. no one MAN enough
not one "thing" to testify. WITNESS
being-lost in the wild becomes
a tearing force
