The Beach / Jesus at 2am - Thom Young


The Beach

I found her

head on the beach

the eyes

black and dull


the days

we spent smoking

cigarettes and holding


watching our youth

grow old

in the fading



Jesus at 2am

nothing left for Jesus

to save 

sad children

running sideways 

in the rain

and pretending

the tv reflects back at them

 a world of love

in a monochrome
