by Richard Tornello


Her, there, in front of the screen.
Me, here, in front of the screen.

Sometimes, many times we live in so different worlds.
Hers, a world of video, movies and the false news of the news.

And me?
A world of words,
The false world of stories, of poems
Philosophy, theology ,history, and make believe.

Both in the fog of hope and escape,
A better world
That’s not ours to make.
