Beyond Petroleum

The poet Nick Asbury has sent along this poem as a response to Eyewear's BP posts.  In 2008, he published a pamphlet called Corpoetics, made up of poems created by rearranging the words from corporate websites.  This is an addition to that project.  The link at the end he considers effectively part of the text.




Beyond petroleum

After the platforms,
the ships, the refineries,

After the solutions,
the fuel and facilities,

After the products,
the light and the heat,

After the pride
and the corporate need,

After today
and what we do now,

God and the world.
God and the world.
