Dirty Business


Too much pollution
In our air, in our water
In our politics


“There is the path of wisdom and the path of ignorance. They are far apart and lead to different ends … Abiding in the midst of ignorance, thinking themselves wise and learned, fools go aimlessly hither and thither like the blind led by the blind. What lies beyond life shines not to those who are childish, or careless, or deluded by wealth. ”

– Katha Upanishad,

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. We’ve had a lot of rain lately and I fear the smell of a slow mist has changed, even here in the rural. Thank you for your poetry, Ben.
