Allen Ginsberg - Those Two

That tree said
    I don't like that white car under me,
                    it smells gasoline
That other tree next to it said
    O you're always complaining
             you're a neurotic
        you can see by the way you're bent over.

                                        July 6, 1981, 8 p.m.

Those Two by Ginsberg

This poem is eco-critical in nature and brings into spotlight the hazardous effects of modern technology on the natural order. The first tree represents the voice of nature against the alarming growth of machine at the cost of nature. The second tree, in an ironic mood, asks the first tree to accept the reality as it is.

cute, seems atypical of Ginsberg. Could have been written by anyone??? Which was Ginsberg, the long-winded, recounting over and over the aspects of the events, or was he the cutesy, terse, witty, Ginsberg???
