Note about Nature

martha cinader
What if we are just being ourselves, just like cockroaches are being themselves, and every natural and unnatural thing we do is really just our nature to do and we are just as loathsome to some superior aliens as that cockroach on my kitchen counter that I naturally want to smash?

Note to Note is a daily exercise in observing, witnessing, taking note of something, someone, some thought. The effort is inspired by the prodigious telephone poems of the great poet Pedro Pietri. I heard him read many of those short and often humorous poems, and saw the great big book he read them from. Yet to be published in full, you can find some of his telephone poems in an anthology of his poetry, Pedro Pietri, Selected Works recently published by City Lights Books. And perhaps one day these notes of mine will find their way in to print, but you can indulge yourself right here, right now, for nothing but your valuable time.
