when i see
the pictures in
the paper
i don't see
lawyers doctors
protesters
irate family
worn out loved ones


i don't see
governors intruding
right to lifers
pro-choicers
right wing christian
dogma


i don't see
a tired looking man
paunchy and
helpless

all i can make out
is a child
in a box
and parents
too selfish with love
to send their child
home

Nicely written, I also like the clipped style. I think we have to speak out about current issues with our poetry. My only stance on this particular issue is that I'm relieved I'm not the one deciding it -- and I've made sure my wishes are well known to my entire family.

Do you have children? Do you honestly believe that you wouldn't do the same as her parents if your little one was in Terri's condition? It's better than her "loving" husband wanting her to die so he can get on with his life with another woman and their kids...the whole thing sickens me.

Powerful thought provoking write, though--made me cry.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. *tears*

Yes, I agree. Very well said, to my mind. The clipped style appeals to me. Also, where is it written that poets can't speak on current issues, or issues of a divided nature? Are we to remain mute, unless we voice soft pleasant thoughts? Thanks, Henry

Oh, my gosh...I had not read your poem until after I posted mine and sometimes it amazes me how poets are on the same realm...in thought and in the universe
I liked your perspective because it is one I share...I just wrote one this morning that reflects it
Great write...I hope you keep expressing thoughts that others just might keep inside due to confrontation

Thoughtful and direct. Are you skilled at dodging flying debri, A.?
