Zero Waste

Zero Waste

The machine twists its head:

Bubbling, snarling and growling —

Éclatant.


From the spoiled crust of capitalism’s yester-year

Rises a brown thing, an old thing;

Gnarled, broken, and barbed.


“Single-use

Single-use

Single-use,”

It whines.

“Convenience is king,”

It pleads.

“Consume!”

It shouts.


From the depths of women’s hearts:

An outpouring of emotional labour and guilt —

A push towards the light,

Bending over backwards,

Forwards,

For the planet.

In lieu of companies;

They change.


The thing rears its head and stares

Whites like plates

Blacks like pinpricks

Swallowing this world whole

Gorging itself

Greenwashing itself

Burning itself

Not for society, but for satiety.
