VA Medical Center--Kansas City, MO


See the wind blow

the top of the grown trees.

No bumblebees on the way

and no birds, I see.

As the skyline is trying

to take shape from air

pollution and dirty clouds' intake,

I hear the birds chirp.

Somewhere, hiding

without light, I assume

they learned their lesson of not clean air

to the rhythm of a piano

tune day and night.

We are forced to buy

that as we sleep in,

fight that we don't suffocate.
