paperbackcompletepoemscoverLet us pretend

Life doesn’t end.

There’s no war,

No keeping score.


Nobody grows old,

Hungry or cold,

There’s always enough

When life’s rough.


No one knows

Pain or woes,

People aren’t shun

Seen as one.


Life isn’t perfect

We can’t neglect.

Work to reshape,

Not to escape.

from The Complete Poems of BREVITY
