Complaint Of The Millennium Poem by Nathan Coppedge

Complaint Of The Millennium

Rating: 5.0

'Dreams don't die, they died a long time ago.'

We left the red out because we're getting edited out,
Someone's snorting bone-dust
And the ocean is full of oil slick.

Someone had a question about something funny that expressed the sentiment of younger generations. What I found wasn't very funny. note, I have subsequently wondered if I un-consciously borrowed this poem from a poet working in Indiana, so I am not claiming full credit for this work. I wish I knew the original poet's name. I am also not sure the poems are identical. I have a very poor memory so it seems unlikely they are exactly the same poem. Most of my poems seem to be original. I make this note because of a paranoia that it does not sound like my poetic voice, but people may think it's funny I used this particular voice thinking it was me. I once heard a great poet say 'the best poems are made to be stolen', so if the original poet reads this, just keep in mind I mean posting this poem as a compliment not an abuse. I was concerned no one would get to hear this poem if the poet lives in Indiana. It's rare but whoever wrote this is a poet worth imitating, and if I had a link to their book I would recommend it.
