I AM A NATURAL WONDER

The stream is ravaged
just as the banks are ravaged.
Bank as in earth formation
or financial institution?
You’re both right.
Disorientation is easy
but only sometimes informative
like watching cable TV:
the dog left locked
in the car in the middle of summer,
the radioactive crab growing not
to giant, pissed off proportions,
just getting sick.
What are you supposed to do?
My brothers are
a string of pearls,
a nest of spiders.
Human beings robbing pharmacies
then going on picnics from hell.
