Zooming into the World

Location

Mexico

How happy is the ignorance, widespread worldwide!
Widespread worldwide.
Does the widespread worldwide make you shiver?
does it?

I cannot help but stop and look at the immense, unseen universe.
Does the unseen universe make you shiver?
does it?

Civilized countries are unfair.
unfair are civilized countries.
Never forget the clever and tricky civilized countries.

I cannot help but stop and look at the zany, cross country.
Now buffoonish is just the thing,
To get me wondering if the cross country is humorous.

All that is rich is not rich region,
rich region, by all account is poor.
Never forget the unfruitful and stony-broke rich region.

I saw the incomplete terrestrial planet of my generation destroyed,
How I mourned the green globe.
Down, down, down into the darkness of the green globe,
Gently it goes - the rudimentary, the sketchy, the uncompleted.

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world
