An Excerpt is below:

I come from a world of GladWare

and Spy ware hardware and cable The land of plastic, anthrax, cosmo and reality T.V. Where life is about high-speed net work plans plasmas and commercials. The city of car bombs Dirty bums, plaid pleated skirts and gum covered sidewalks The state of traffic, stress disorders anxiety attacks—pill poppers road blocking and complaints to city hall We measure ourselves by pay checks and home wrecks, vandals and divorce The place where anorexia and McDonald’s coexist. With smog and bumper stickers weed whackers and computer hackers Prada purses and pick pockets Front row seats and back alleys Tax cuts, and lay offs and offices with too little space. and complaints when our coffee has no foam. A society where bitter closed off people buy into chick flicks And parents crowd their kids with visual clutter and wonder where ADD comes from I am not a revolutionary. The outcasts are just as conventional as the “yes men” I come from “privilege” and I have shared a room with two people A toast to the modern world. To the wonder that the world makes of my life. And I participate and am guilty

~ But, I notice the breeze as I walk I have not forgotten how a fresh pad of paper feels to be written for the first time. I make cookies from scratch
