A wierd pretentious, ultimately okay poemabout nature and how we can never truly understand it

Reality as perceived by the jaded capitalist

Lilies blossoms bloom in autumn

What in the harsh winter, of course, the plum

In summer see the tree as it is sawn

In spring see the apple as it’s born

See the clouds bank over the horizon

See the rain against the sun

Care as a dove flutters against the sky

Wonder as the wonder dies

Bear witness to the bear in the forest as it roars

Against the honey bees as they soar

No one knows about a dog’s nose

As it sniffs the succulent rose

Why does civilisation kill the dream?

Why is nature never as it seems

Reality bends in the wilderness

Reality flexes in a city, at best

Nature is the greatest of mysteries

As are the depthless depths of the sunken sea
