to open the paper
if it just sits over there
in its little blue plastic bag
I’m safe
to turn on the t.v.
if it just stays dark
keeps it’s images and talk talk talk
to itself
I’m safe
to turn on the radio
hear that scary “we interrupt this program”
I’m safe
won’t even look at a.o.l. news
I can just
sit here
not knowing what’s happening
not facing
or thinking
or wondering or being
damn it to hell anyways
I am

on a lighter note. I have been thinking for a word for your poetry - couldnt put my finger on it, but it was on the tip of my tongue. La Belle got it..."spontaneous and true to live!"

Hi, I am still sorry about my error yesterday. I want to say you are not alone with these feelings. But what is done is done. I worry for my Americans. I know I should worry about all, and I do. But my troops come first.
Your writing was excellent!!!
