Mary De La Vallette – What Is It You Do?

Little green bug
Crawling on my arm,
What is it you do?
Are you merely food
For some other important being
In an infinitesimal order
We barely comprehend?
Or are you, yourself
Some irreplaceable function
Of Gaia?
(like mycorrhizal fungi)

Which brings me
As always
Full circle
To ask
What is it humans do?

Mary de La Valette
May 1995 Earth First!
