  • "A Poison Tree" is a poem written by William Blake, published in 1794.
  • This tiny blue ringed octopus is about the size of a golf ball. His Venom can cause blindness, nausea, paralysis and respiratory failure, as well as death.
  • The poison the dart frog’s glands contain is called batrachotoxin. This toxin blocks nerve signals to muscles, causing paralysis and death.
  • The Hooded Pitohui causes irritations an numbness if you just touch the feathers. Eating them without precautions isn't a good idea, it's the last supper.

Poison is a metaphor for immortal love in Rome and Juliet and for perfidious murder and betrayal in Hamlet- Prince of Denmark.

The shiny surface of Cities got an icon of representing any spot of the globalized world in the superficial esthetics of advertisements and Public relations campaigns. Not only smiling dictators on TV or on banners in public spaces, also the skylines of their Capitals got a visual for the spreading of a glamorous appearance. Scars of war and natural catastrophies are camouflaged with a glossy surface of a prosperous commercial future in the light of construction booms and gentrefication.
