19-year-old Student Develops Ocean Cleanup Array...

19-year-old Boyan Slat has unveiled plans to create an Ocean Cleanup Array that could remove 7,250,000 tons of plastic waste from the world’s oceans. The device consists of an anchored network of floating booms and processing platforms that could be dispatched to garbage patches around the world. Instead of moving through the ocean, the array would span the radius of a garbage patch, acting as a giant funnel. The angle of the booms would force plastic in the direction of the platforms, where it would be separated from plankton, filtered and stored for recycling.

The Decanto Poetry Magazine/Anthology has seen fit to publish a poem of mine!

Elegy To My Grandmother

Grandmother’s gone
She of the auburn red hair, braided into buns
over her ears–

She can no longer advise me,
she who gave me space
as I grew into adulthood
on that summer day when I was young.

She saw me as an adult
the way no one else had.
She made no judgments
on my ways.
She supported my moods
however they showed.

She can no longer polish her
hardwood floors.
Her Swede-killer brush has gone
and there is no one to wield it.
Nor are there any floors
to polish anymore–

Gone too are the windows I gazed from–
into the soft summer nights
when my heart was torn
by desire and loss.

The windows where I saw the faint outlines
and red tail lights of the car
belonging to my heart’s first
love and my body’s desire.

She is gone, who gave me a melancholy book
to match my mood.
She had been in that place–
She knew what I needed–

She stood by me.

I miss her.

I am overwhelmed...Thank you for my hearts!

Thank you seems so inadequate, but it is all I have...
