Plastic

A Poem by Einstein Noodle

Image result for floating garbage on the shores

Plastic

She swallows everything he throws her way,
forcing down the bile of disregard.
Coffee ground  brown 
drowning      -     oceans green. 
She denied belief in his sidebar glances.
How His calloused heart beat Her!
He cloaks up the Earth.
She swallows real hard.
Cut    -     ragged     -      frayed 
edges in the waters.
She beat against the lands with tidal influence.
No avail!
His tide 
His  Clorox and Tide refusing refuse negotiations.
He publishes poison.
She uses all Her wiles to wrap an embrace 
but its plastic after all.
She tools flowered vines and grasses
falling leaves and animal scent -     
tresses ripe golden wheat -
padding soft parts of her feet. 
          
Rising from slumber She sharpens claws
with a red morning sun.
Scratch marks appear like tracks of her tears.
She wants to purr -
- She hooks -
white orbs of migraine! 
A breakfast for Him! 
A warning.

Sad that we live in a plastic throw away society..what a mess modern mankind has created..and the ocean strives still to caress us with beauty..a hard task for nature to struggle through such disregard and mess..your writing is always so well expressed a delight to read

Well, this is certainly a collection of imagery that is rather perplexing. I mean, yes, one may literally interpret the words but, as always, there's usually much more to it. I shall ponder this one at length, perhaps I will settle into a shallow foxhole of understanding. Thank you, EN.

Oh...such brilliant use of metaphors here, dear E...This write stands out first and foremost for its vividness. The earth has such a lousy, mean and selfish lover! She swallows hard, she beats, she uses all her viles and tool but to no avail, it seems.

Loved just loved the artful use of plastic here! It says everything! And superb conclusion too...she uses the red morning sun to chasten him...and what awaits him is a warning...and a warming...

I love the picture you used...the litter and refuse near the sea and other water bodies never fails to raise my hackles.

Never was a more stunning poem written on the subject. A fabulous and fantastic read for me!

A depressing poem but well written on the truths of our world at present and on how man lives up to leaving his presence everywhere like plastic. Nature can only consume so much of man's waste!

We are such a despicable race E (not you, just all of the thems), i sometimes wonder why nature just roll that boulder and lock us in before we escaped our caves and put the dolphins in charge.
Perhaps that is why sharks bite us to bits but never swallow. I bet we taste bloody disgusting and they only do it as payback for wrecking their home.
Inspiring and thought provoking as ever.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go live up a tree, before they evolve feet and really get payback 😀

Your fantastic with abstract concepts; moreover, your choice of verbiage fits perfectly into your scenarios adding so much color to your writing. Thank you for sharing.

I feel sadness and strength in your words. It's past time to do more about this mess. Seems obvious this was going to happen - 1 plastic bottle x's 1,000,000!? Your thoughts well-expressed.

My pleasure, E!
E., this reads like a domestic battery police report (something I know well in my profession). What an image you've created here, and not only anger but a feeling of personal failure... for not doing more to stop the abuse of our natural resources. And, I love the music, too.
