Breaking News

Torrents of particulars
about catastrophes
about which nothing
can be done.

Wars are never won
but only kill themselves
into oblivion.

There is no answer
here, my dear.

Indiscretions of a Chase

Ah! – the indiscretions
of a chase!
Imagining there’s something
to be won in every race! --

believing that what passes by
means, by its passing,
it is better than what’s here --
inveterately classing,

by mere scarcity, the bits
you missed with value:
newness flitting through --
bidding you pursue. Shall you?

Of Three Minds

I’m of three minds, it said to me –
one which looks ahead to see
and two that don’t:  
Wish they would align. They won’t.
