Good to see, a gesture in the right direction, no question.

However, and a big however: Maybe it's time for poets (like the younger ones, especially, who seem overly preoccupied with winning prizes and jobs and the like) to bring back graffiti bombing, all over fossil-fuel headquarters everywhere and whatever corporate plazas, etc. Give the planet your tag, poets, individual or collective (One, Two, Three, Many Collective Poetry Fronts!), not the tired star-Poet Authorial claim. It might be an urgent time to dispense with that and start being extra bad?

Maybe good is the new bad.
Sincerely, Jack Derrida.

left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
