WHAT ELSE IS NEW?

WHAT ELSE IS NEW?

 

The world has been coming apart from the start.

From Abel and Cain; those 40 Days of Rain–

From the start, the world has come apart.

The Hebrews knew and told the tale,

And Epimetheus’ wife–what was her name?

And Midas turned all to inedible gold.

To make it bearable, Coyote made death.

Valhalla all went up in flame.

I’m sitting on my porch, listening

to catbird in the ilex, singing.
