The End of Life in America… by Lee Ranaldo


Lee Ranaldo

the end of life in america…

the end of life in america
a broken chain of meanings
a tom carpet
that gash in the wall
where the chair flew
dirt under the beds
meaningless headlines
and silence between us.
years swallowed up
waiting for something to happen.

Poem taken from ARBELLA poetry zine edited by Tom Obrzut & Anthony George circa 1990
