Whole Foods

Put an organic apple

in your belly

with no attachment

to an outcome

of liberation.


Until we amputate


from our governing mythology:

There is no harvest of peace.

There is no funeral for death.

There are no believers in natural truth.

There are only excess crooks

oiling the robots on grandpa’s old farm.
