Kel McGowan is Kelligrafie
Day 23: Write a seven line poem that begins with “it’s true that fresh air is good for the body” (from Frank O’Hara’s poem “Ave Maria”) and ends with “this is our body” (from Gary Snyder’s “The Bath”).
This poem is based around the idea of the body being our planet.
It's true that fresh air is good for the body
Brisk salty sea air
Brash whipping mountain air
We are choking the air with our fumes
Factory char-filled fumes
Wood burnt deforestation fumes
This is our body
