No Need to Breathe


No Need to Breathe

This air is thick with thoughts
People screaming different languages in the streets
The Tower of Babel is fresh in our collective memory
You’re waiting your last days out on a porch
I’m still trying to find something to do
Radiation is seeping through
Contaminated blood -a common occurrence
Nothing is worth dying -except for peace
