23. Poetry by John J. Dunphy

Enough Food for a Nation

enough food for a nation
farmer harvests crops from
his 10 acres

rejuvenation chamber
accident victim grows
a new left leg

living history festival
cultural reenactors depict
living in poverty

birthday cake
each candle = 100 Earth years

expired passport
I’m refused entry to
the Andromeda Galaxy

history class
teacher explains
what a gun was
