Awaiting the next Feartime

1-6-21 J


insurrections in all 50 States

in all big cities

in all senior centers

in all

Is this the predictions of the 12 foot snow

that never came

of the nine foot one that did

is this a new word

global fearing


2-I sit at my computer

and write words

listening to Louise Ferrenc, Symphony in G

a female 19th Century French Composer

who we should know more of,

listening to

Classic FM UK,

sometimes wishing one of these

was my country

should mention we had a Brit meal tonight

in memory of Henry the V111,

we supped without vegetables


will listen to CBC

then watch Smiley’s people


3-By tomorrow night

or the one after

or the one after

or by the 21st

nothing else will have happened

we will go to bed

in the same room as our dogs

two of them anyhow, and

maybe some lives should remain unexamined
