In all the kerfluffal of nations at bay,
of people in turmoil and things in decay,
in the midst of elections, rejections and fuss,
of revoltings and joltings brought directly to us
by news and all the confused opinionators --
there is only one thing I think really matters....
Something’s wonderful about leaving the dust,
just seeing it there and not feeling I must
take it away for some ungodly reason
when it only returns, ever-increasing.
My aunt once said what I’m picturing here;
she said flocked furniture is ‘in’ this year.
