Graphic Footage – A Poem by Brandon White

Hello Friends,

A new free verse poem waits below, born from my brain’s inability to shut down at night.


Graphic Footage:

Blue light
floods the room,
the whistle and snap
of exchanged gunfire

A child sleeps peacefully
less than a foot away
from the hand-held horrors of war
and a mind on fire

From this
eight-inch screen,
blissful ignorance
comes undone

Tell me,
where were you
when you found a tear
in the world you knew?

Who were you
after peeking through?

-Brandon White
