Gaia Regards Her Children a video-poem by Tova Beck-Friedman

Made to a poem by Alicia Ostriker and read by Duvall O’steen:

after all I have done for them
is the term that springs to mind
yet I continue to generate
abundance which they continue to waste
they expect me to go on giving forever
they don’t believe anything I say
with my
wet green
hot mouth

    Tova, now more than ever your work is a gift that helps us hold on to sanity while the world around us is losing it.
    Thank you, from the bottom of my heavy heart.
