"The cult of the pristine took hold among a small group of people trying to slow the relentless march of scorched-earth resource extraction in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, to throw bodies on the workings of the machine. These dissenters later hardened their positions, like any outgunned rebel army." --Jesse Lichtenstein

Deep Pluto.

Where Pluto wones
some snow of air may fall;

So lonely truth
these billion miles will reach...
meanwhile here but hooch
in us plants teeth.
