War

with 4 comments

raw foods are best they say.  so…
i am eating
carrots and mung sprouts
hoping
for optimum health.

i am listening to the daily reports:
food being dropped on a nation

bombs we are dropping on a Nation.

the radio has become a
cancerous growth.
my eyes are thick with
melanoma of television,
a single vision

like the 4th of July
i am standing in a crowd of                   People
watching the neon bombs far away.
