Repugnant is Newt by Karen Belli

February 6, 2012

Newt is a brute,
a brute is Newt.

Newt you are moot,
so moot is Newt;

A bloated ego,
and vile to boot…

Newt Newt,
you’re so NOT astute!

An insidious plutocracy

of earth rapists

oblige my consumption.

They charge me monthly,

until I die.

a pine by Richard Aston

December 16, 2010

This poem is from a collection: “Gas, Fire, and Water from Marcellus Shale”, a collection of poems and drawings of John Bromberg’s sculptures by Richard Aston which has the aim of making people aware of the time involved in the life cycle of gas from Marcellus shale (100 million years), and acquire an appreciation for the water which is threatened by the process of drilling for and extracting the gas. What right do we have to use all this gas in one century? How will this process affect future generations? A thematic poem goes:

GAS

How long has it been since you felt the sun, turned toward it, put out a flower, fed a flighty thing after your nectar?

How did you bear the weight pressing on you, the millions of years, the rocks and the sea?

Was it me you were fixing to attend,
I who burn you,
use the energy that you stored so long, all of it for me?

For what purpose?

To go where?

John Bromberg is a prolific artist working in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and Richard Aston published most of the poems, primarily in the region.

we walk atop the snow

No more sleeping
in peace,

only sleeping
while watched.
