plastic

Okay, we all know this, but it takes fifty thousand years for a plastic container to begin decomposing.  Take that little fact with you the next time you go to the grocery store.
Humans!
I feel apologetic to be one of them in the same way I used to feel apologetic for being a white girl growing up.  Knowing that "whites" had held themselves above a rainbow of dermal expressions, I was acutely aware of the obvious fact that I bore the skin of an oppressor.  I wear the mortal shell of human with that same weight of sadness when I think of how we, as humans, overlook our interdependence in favor of the delusion of elite separation.
