Agent Orange Old Man in a New Body

How is it to be this old this new, Dow, Monsanto, Uniroyal--

A Poem by Gloria Stevens

How is it to be this old this new
feet and hands and head
Agent Orange: Monsanto’s blood transfusion,
Dow’s tissue transplant.
Uniroyal’s gift of skin.

Look hard, but not away
stockholders, you who are apathetic,
all of you who do not know concern.

Americans, rise up–we caused this.

Call your congressmen–support legislation to help all victims of Agent Orange.
