News from: American

(SUBURB, Md.-Landscapers, Jeremy and Carlos listen to NPR during their lunch break.)

I am not able to concentrate Here
Sometimes in America
the news the facts the data comes too quickly
My mind isn't able to rest
and think about the rest
of America and it's world
Sometimes in America we are working and forget
Sometimes in America we miss the news we create
Sometimes we
Have no time to imagine elaborate screened-in patios in New England
Have no time to remember our wars
or the Americans that we've lost there
or the ones still there
In America we definitely don't have time
to think of non-Americans
