Pro-life priorities

human history
mapped in true perspective
would foreground the disconnect
between the will of the people
and the acts of the state

(which disconnect
has reached an alltime max)

but the microcosmic symbol
of this disconnect
that moves me most

is the universal sentimentality
over pregnancy and babies

weighed against the
insane cynicism
of pollution-for-profit

(the growing embryo
being the most vulnerable point
in the chemical ecosystem)
