Ignorance- Amanda Thomas

sometimes I wish I could unsee 

the terrible crimes on our tvs 

unread the painful stories, peel 

each agony from my skin 

like so many  

newspaper sheets, switch 

the station at on-the-hours, 

slip on my rose-tinted glasses. 

              how exhausting  

              it is to be  

a bleeding heart to care 

so much. when we can’t change 


we can’t even stop the next suicide  

on Manus Island
