Sand

 

She says,

she’s never gonna die.

She says,

she exists in different times

and when she’s done here,

she’s just gonna disappear,

and I want to believe

she isn’t lying.

 

He says,

he’s seen it all before.

He says,

after 20 years

of fighting the same war,

the broken parts of men

don’t get healed again,

but most folks

don’t even notice,

anymore.

 

They say,

things they don’t understand.

These days,

they don’t try to comprehend.

They say,

“Stay in your lane”.

while the world goes insane,

and they bury their heads

in the sand.
