Planted Poems I describes the experience of being at the San Francisco Decompression event, a mini Burn gathering that took place around Halloween 2019. The poem’s speaker describes the energy of the night as a wave-like force, flowing against an incoming red tide from the direction of the Pacific Ocean. They see this event as a significant moment for their generation, a chance to create a counterculture and be disconnected from the world around them. The poem is characterized by its use of vivid imagery and its focus on the collective energy of the event.
