Noise

Sharing is caring!

A poem for the times

it’s war and shellings

families

separated

goodbyes to dads brothers husbands

evacuations

cancelled and the promise of ceasefires

shattered.

It’s streams of refugees

racism even now?

who gets in and who can

get out

We forgot our humanity, again?

Why do we have any refugees at all

Why are we fighting

Haven’t we learned

anything

Why can’t I stop thinking about what I would do with my dog, of all things, if the tables were turned?

And my life upended.


It’s flooding in Australia

nobody’s

helping

And there are still Democrats and Republicans drawing stark outlines between things

Sit stay

We are fighting about oil?

even still

And inflation

Don’t forget climate change

and it’s going

to

get

worse

And…….

Where can we go to escape the noise?


All I want is to lose myself in the throat of a flower
