Mostly useless

Lately
I’m finding
a foothold
in my grief
by casually
buying small
things like
organic
eyeliner
or recycled
markers
or cotton
dishcloths
that will save
the environment
from the scourge
of paper towels
and since I
in my rich
whiteness
have been
wholly ineffectual
at saving
anything
money
time
democracy
Americans
I suppose
planting my
flag in
the Earth’s crust
and saying
don’t worry 
folks
I got this
It’s okay
I bought 
a towel
(it’s Swedish)
Is a logical
megalomaniacal
next
step
