Untitled Poetry by Natasha Epstein

Watch the people
with their petty fights
Watch the towns
the little arguments about what belongs to who.

Watch the cities
the states
the countries
all fighting
all yelling
all bombing each other into oblivion
why can’t they stop?

Why can’t they
just sit back, just watch,
observe the world
zoom out
they’ll see
see beyond their own for once.

Look at our planet
Look.
It’s just a revolving sphere.
What if you could just
reach out, touch it, and
turn it off kilter?

Imagine all of us
falling against each other,
against the sky.
Our entire lives flung into chaos
just because of
one
tiny
push.
