The Disruption I’ve Caused | Poetic Redaction from BP’s 2010 Oil Spill

Oil I’m oil,
from BP to
Hell the gulf
I’ve covered in
slime and
muck. It all
becomes
needless
talk instead
of honest
concerns rather
than the
“massive
disruption”,
I’ve caused.

Oil To Oil | Redacted poem from BP’s response to 2010 oil spill

I was only joking
when I said,
“it can be easily
contained.”

It’s a massive
deepwater
disruption, where
operations
are daily
failures.

“There was
just too
Much flow”,

allowing
the beach to
see the details
of environmental
disaster.

From Louisiana
to the gulf of
Mexico.

What Crises? | Redacted poem from BP’s response to Gulf Oil spill

Oil I’m oil,
It’s a massive
financial health
insurgency and
not about deepwater
disruptions per day.

I raise a cup to
environmental workers
as hospitalized operations
are harassed failures.

“There was just too
Much flow”

The beach masks
leaking interest
hindering a fisherman
cleaning guerrilla, who
sees details
of disasters more
than any other time
In US history, including
Exxon Valdez.
