Ukraine, Double Vision

Paul Lojeski: Early summer morning every-where, a slight breeze across calm, self-assured faces, not an angry word heard or gesture seen nor the blood
ukraine lie

Ukraine

is not
the name
of a country,
it’s the name
of a lie,
another lie
like Vietnam,
Nicaragua,
Grenada,
Panama,
Iraq, Libya
Afghanistan,
Gaza, the
West Bank
and Syria.
Like peace,
democracy
and human
rights. Like
the United
States of
America,
just another
lie.

Double Vision

Let’s dream
this together:

Early summer
morning every-

where, a slight
breeze across

calm, self-
assured faces,

Recommended for You

not an angry
word heard

or gesture seen
nor the blood

of battle suffered
the whole world

wide. Are you
dreaming, yet?
