Gary Beck/Contusions


Media Face

Crowds flock to the voting booth

supporting the candidate

they never met,

but firmly believe in,

have strong opinions about,

argue passionately for

against those with contrary views,

giving a level of trust

that no one with common sense

would ever give to a stranger.


Contusions is an unpublished poetry collection that explores the aches and pains we suffer from the assault of life.
