Thoughtful commentary on the state of the world Jeffrey.
Although not strictly accurate as a statement of scientific fact, the poet is free to exercise hyperbole to express a deeper truth or warning.
Jeffrey''s decision to structure the verse as an unpunctuated single line ku to me mimics the manner and message of a chyron, which we see across the bottom of our screens on TV news broadcasts – further enhancing its impact as a warning and a commentary on the state of the world.
I wonder if it might convey the same message but with a more poetic aesthetic (and thus avoid provoking, while still challenging certain politically affiliated individuals) if it was written as a three-line verse, perhaps broken in this way:
To me this structure emphasises the alliterative and poetic elements of the verse, while the repeating pattern of two words down the page seems to infer a perhaps alarming ongoing repetition of the same process, just like our seemingly unceasing production of plastic.
