Poembox: noise doesn’t move fast enough

Written by Arts, Poetry

what about the war; what about the women 

which war? my tampons cost more

than his car, have you forgotten

nonsense. about the food banks 

helpless in a typhoon. 

what about depression; we don’t get those here;

whose turn was it to watch the men

i swear there used to be these things that could fly;

your teenager! he’s morphing 

into his porn, oh look your daughter

can do it too.

there’s too much fire or is that ice;

what about education

it is a shame about those polar bears.

smile! the world is working  off your cue.

what about th- me?
