When The Dust Settles

If we do nothing
But comment ironically
And watch the world burn

When the dust settles,
We all will be buried in
Dead skin and ash;

When the dust settles
It will only be because
We settled for dust.


Thomas Romeo: I guess I’d be considered an Outsider Poet. I’ve been writing and performing my work since the mid-1990s, but have no academic background in poetry. Originally from Long Island where I was a member of the Long Island Permance Poets Association, I moved to Kingston, NY in 2014 where I self-published two Chapbooks: Remember? and Demented Love, and am currently working on a third entitled OMG. My poetry is personal, political and Spiritual.”
