Today in America, a Poem by John Grey

Updated: Mar 3, 2022

Today in America - Modern Poetry

The sky is neutral,

blue above,

red at the edges –

same for the earth,

red and brown,

occasional breaks

for blue lakes

and white snowcaps –

people go about their business,

in the skins they were born with –

some are thinking,

most just repeat what they’ve heard.


John Grey is an Australian poet, US resident, recently published in Soundings East, Dalhousie Review and Connecticut River Review. Latest book, “Leaves On Pages” is available through Amazon.
