After reading and listening to poems about the natural world in a breakout session in yesterday’s Winter Symposium, students and faculty put their heads and hands to work to write poems on well, yes, plastic bags, usually the detritus of our civilization, today the pages for one of humankind’s most enduring art forms. Fragments of poems that meditate on nature–that’s what these trash poems are. Take a look; they are on display near the elevator on 2nd floor. “I say there are/ places best left holy” (Lola Haskins).
