Disposable

My new collection dropped on opensea on May 6th and is a comment on greed and waste. 10 pieces priced at 0.2 ETH and minted on my own smart contract. Each image comes with poetry that is part of a long prose on the subject. Click on the caption to view on opensea.

01 Aftertaste

Disposable Collection 01


the beautiful people
influence so well
with slick abandon
and perfect smiles

intense joy
laughter shared
then left
with sharp aftertaste
of shame and regret

we desire and take
grab and crave
while
the earth is trampled
by the weight of us

02 Life

Disposable Collection 02


nourishment
refreshment
joy
packaged
for convenience

time is precious
we save
and bargain for more

needs override
desire overwhelms
we turn a blind eye

03 Crushed

Disposable Collection 03

crushed
by endless wants
the real thing
belched out
by greed and cash

try to ignore
the gnawing
gaping hunger
for more

flashy
shiny
tempting moments
leaving nothing
but bitterness and waste

04 Wasted

Disposable Collection 04

a short life consumed
exhausted
disrespected

a legacy in long grass
forgotten
unremembered
erased
gone
while our abuse
scars the earth

05 Thirst

Disposable Collection 05

Spare me your fake concern
your bandaid solutions
your plans and schemes
while you spew out more

tell us what we desire
wrapped in a pleasing bow
and force it down our throats

while your stocks rise
your yachts sail
your glee unrestrained
you created us

06 Rage

Disposable Collection 06

like hapless children
we do our bit
to tidy our room
against an avalanche
of filth

more plastic bins
to save more plastic
more bags for life
forgotten at home
more petitions to soothe us
against the inevitable

07 Disposable

Disposable Collection 07

this vast space
magnificent earth
we dominate and possess
conquer and control

filth and smoke
waste and fire
a legacy
for our babies
and their babies

08 Shame

Disposable Collection 08

we burden the poor
who toil and graft
and die
for our lust

slaving for us
till we become
slaves

we admire the haves
pulling the strings
while we dance
at their command

09 Greed

Disposable Collection 09

earth will survive
burnt
scarred
battered
suffocating

delicate balance
upset
askew
ripped and torn

we will leave it
changed
but undefeated

10 Finale

Disposable Collection 10

in our final hours
we will breathe
regret
and sadness
for what we failed
to achieve

hope is human
but fading
and earth longs
for us to leave
