Richard Pierce – author, poet, painter

Life, Poetry


the horizon is a screen
life a drive-in cinema
where nothing is real

until it’s real

the canvas of our pictures
a window for others
the frame a border
the glass a wall

put your hand through the pane and it’s real

shards blood and pain
a script that changes each
day until it doesn’t

what is real

happiness is just
the projection of other people’s misery
over our own
