One Poem by GJ Hart


               

What They Say

 

Today 

in my city

within in a city

it is silent

but sequined  -

a sleeping,

dying body, - the sun's

finger prodding down -

even the politicians

won't lie -

 

all born

from pain - God

and computers,

the cockroaches think

we'll survive and rats

just crave peace -

one of us

is mad but who's

to say who -

 

today

is a stone

imprint - I'll press

my pain -  bury it

in the knee's

soft cave or banish it

to the back's grey ocean -

so I can never hurt,

even when I am

touched.
