[34] Two Poems, Thom Young

War

wars go on with broken hearts
and nowadays a dream
is tough to find.
but as for nightmares
they’re giving
those away
for free.
living
is the only thing better
than death,
it beats love
with none in return.

 

America

america has sunshine
I never wanted
it has oceans
and
women that aren’t on its mountains
it has television sets
of sad lives
and sometimes they’re on repeat
and repeat all over again.
it has birds that don’t sing
my song
and if you’re lost
maybe you’ll find
me too.
