There is a war in Yemen

There is a war in Yemen

Overview

 

 

It will not stop
once you flip the channel
or change your mind

There is a war in Yemen

In hospital basements
munitions are collected
like cadavers in a morgue

There is a war in Yemen

Children are gasping
for the meat of mosquitoes
Their rib cages, like injera
are spongy and core-less

There is a war in Yemen

When you go home
to your shower and table
When you stop to watch
the day glide by…

There is a war in Yemen

There is a war.
There is a war.
There is a war.
