VELOCITIES

19 December 2009

on the occasion of copenhagen:

Satur Sulit

s-l-o-w
is the world we are born into,
the universe takes its time,
taking pleasure
in its states of equilibrium,
bearing life.
now man, its own, its favored child,
his engines roaring
sends it hurtling
into untested futures
of catastrophe and destruction.
the word is out:
if there is an end of the world
it will be man-made

    And now the talks at Copenhagen has not really yielded for humanity a clear direction. Greed still grips all nations.

    “his engines roaring
    sends it hurtling
    into untested futures
    of catastrophe and destruction.
    the word is out:
    if there is an end of the world
    it will be man-made”
