A poem by Iago Vendrell
Kudos! Now it seems we have fulfilled our
Technological dreams: a bright future
Wrapped in plastic debree & drifting
Along the sea. Does our madness
See, hear, smell, feel or taste?
What a waste!
Right now, there it is…
Guess what we’ve achieved
With our lovely fast food dreams
And this ‘superior’ human decency?
Plastic sea doesn’t feel like paradise to me.
