Cracks me up!Anarchist grass splits apart
the envelope of controlled rectangles.Little plants
are weeds to some-life to insects,
seeking reprieve from violated feng shui
Chernobyl showed .Fukushima glows.Future mutants
in the tuna flow.All that is green may be an advertising dream.

Natural is a Product(Placement).Now- shift that mountain!
So we can get a better view of the skyline
and those space age skyscrapers
