Off-Shore Drilling

We should drill giant holes in the earth
for burying our carbon waste

We should cap the holes
with tree plantings

We should live near work
and walk to work
thru a nabe we've made liveable

We should commute by bicycle
or by way of good boots
like Whitman strolling into town
across the bridge from Brooklyn

We should journey by kayak
like the Inuit

We should forget
about drilling

A version of this piece was printed in the NYTIMES.COM opinion
section as a comment on the editorial, "A New, And Necessary, Moratorium"
(about stopping deep sea drilling in the Gulf of Mexico) on July 14, 2010.
