    There Is No More...

    By Kevork K Kalayjian Jr

    There is no more poetry
    Love left no traces in memory
    It is impossible to be funny
    Cynicism has deformed sensitivity
    Sex has replaced sensuality
    It's all transformed to lack of care
    Viewed in the silhouette of body
    Listen to the conversational melody.

    Wait! What's that fly doing there?
    Why does it fly in the middle of
    This hospital, white, clean room?

    As I was saying,
    There is no more poverty
    Love has mortgaged memory
    Caring has been overwhelmed by sensitivity
    Instincts have overpowered sensuality
    By reflecting kindness and care
    Portrayed as a stuffed animal, a Teddy Bear!
    Exhibiting great skills in the agility of the body
    Reverberating the proclamation of joy.

    Resonating the resilience of bliss!
