The Word of the Year

So there it is –
single-use
the Word of the Year –

almost invisible
if not asked

its weight
in the mouth –
on the lips –
a negligible act

but what a
colossus of burden
out of that place –
screwing the planet

Mike Bell Poetry

Mike Bell aims to write 10,000 poems, stick them up here one at a time, and then take a nap. By then he should be about 85 years old and have out-gunned PD, dementia, and the end of days. Possibly. Before the floods and fires. Mike Bell is found working for money as a freelance set designer.
