I AM FROM THE 20 CENTURY, Poetry by Miriam Beza

Genre: Society

 I am from the wars and destruction
I am from learning and creation
I am from reading and writing,
research and application
I am from neon white light,
from telephone, television and cinema delight
I am from the thick brush of Impressionists
the dreamy fine brush of Expressionists
I am from Cubists and Post War realists
The conceptual art and contraceptive pill
from rock & roll and punk in the mix
From tower blocks that look like a prison
from airy glass towers and steel
that pierce the sky, lit by neon
I am from laser, the beam that cures or kills
I am from uranium that kills or cures
I am from gluttonous self indulgence
I am from famine and war
I am from all of those and more

Miriam Beza
