June 3.20: Coping

In solemn grace

amid death’s drums

something beautiful

this way comes.

 

 

With thanks to Shakespeare

and to whatever benevolence

sent the swans to the pond.

 

In no way, dear reader, do I intend this to be some saccharine comment

about how things aren’t as bad as they seem:

things ARE as bad as they seem.

But sometimes there’s a moment of reprieve.
