The war that would bring us together by Mark Danowsky

Once around the lunch table
a kid I hardly knew paced and ranted
about how a war with giant insect invaders
would bring us together

I wanted the war to come
to fruition, in my imagination
it would solve the petty everyday indecencies

This was before that geometry class
when we were shepherded to a tv
to watch a plane hit a building over and over

Mark Danowsky’s poetry has appeared in About Place, Beechwood Review, The Broadkill Review, Cordite, Red River Review, Shot Glass Journal and elsewhere.
