Poem by Joseph Caperna
A piece of steak,
a prostitute, the penthouse
Dystopia, polluted planet, hunger
Soylent green is people.
Feeding at its most macabre

I am a physician in San Diego, CA, spent my career dedicated to HIV. To bring compassion and caring, and listening into my medical practice, I am using poetry with my patients and their families. I have traveled over 60 years to 6 contients. These experiences inspire prose and poetry that I am starting to submit to publish.
The poems that follow are powerful evidence that Poetry Speaks Back to Hunger!
