I wrote this on a train that wove through the northern part of the Los Angeles Forest.
Greys and Browns
Orange and Faded Green
Small trees, low shrubs
and silver rocky hills.
I see Beauty stretch for miles,
but all the greedy capitalists want
is blood and organs
to sell for profit.
All they see is dollar signs
As the Greys and Browns of
trees and plants fade into
identical track houses and what
they call Civilization (and I call Destruction and Death).
Manufactured and installed trees,
What happened to the Beauty?
White settlers destroyed it all.
