Autumn Elegy
Rather than reasons for hope, 
we’re given pills of all shapes 
and sizes and colors. Not much 

here can be regarded as natural. 
Fifteen billion trees a year are 
sacrificed to make toilet paper. 
The Wampanoag, the tribe that 
helped the Pilgrims survive their 
first Thanksgiving, still regret it 
400 years later.
