Change the World

Cassi Clark, 2000


by yelling “Live naturally,”

in a synthetic shirt, at grocery store.

“Boycott Dow’s bad chemicals.”


Oregon’s famous tree huggers

chain themselves to their cause

to share the plight of helpless trees

and owls, and enjoy the fame

from newspaper articles that travelers

read in public restrooms that only

have paper towels.


Sitting in a traffic jam on I-5

earth conscious bumper stickers

entertain. Save the whales, trees,

cowboys, hippies. Environmentalists

doing their part like the driver who

just flicked a cigarette out his window.
