“Modernism in Black”
By: Rodolfo Perez
There are bigger problems in life that cannot be fixed by laughter,
Or a bottle.
There are bigger problems,
Than what may become of the
Bubbling cauldron that is fear.
Yes, there are bigger problems,
I have little to do,
I travel great distances,
Yet where are these problems I hear of?
Am I shielded from the atrocities of a modern life?
Or am I blind to raging waterfall of facts that wash over me?
What am I?
Why am I here?
Why am I alive?
Why do you care?
