After Reading the News this Morning

After Reading The News This Morning 

It’s hard to believe after a day not reading the news
that everything is still going on; the bad still happening
so badly,
even as daily life
perseveres (clocks tick, light
shifts, spring tries.)

Wind shook the windows last night—it felt like winter
clinging to the leg of the countryside, wailing please don’t go,
only it’s winter that must
move on—

Everything seems reversed like that—
the blowhard shaking
what he can—

********************************

Another poem for April—I don’t think the drawing fits so well, but it’s late!!!  Have a good night!
