Like A Planet

Like A Planet

Poet James Bertolino writes spare and challenging poems. He writes out of a deep commitment to serving the health and spirit of our planet. This startling and provocative poem is one of our favorites. It has been so popular we reprinted the original letterpress edition by offset lithography. Fits in a standard #10 envelope.

Card, 4 x 9 1/4 inches

To survive
our mnds must taste

redwood and agate
octopi, bat, and in

the bat's mouth,
insect. It's hard

to think like a planet.
We've got to try.
