“We Live” published in I Am Not A Silent Poet. Many thanks Reuben.

in a fake peace between world wars, Shop and shop to stay reasonable. Families are killed elsewhere. We see their relatives tears on plasma screens. Sometimes tears drop closer to home, And we are reminded of our fake comfort, That is preferable, a faux fur covered blade Sometimes bleeds and we are keen.
