Seven Weeks Later

Seven weeks later

Thirty-six cases of beer

Oops-I meant bird flu

 

Seven weeks later

fewer bodies on Lesbos

caught up on the rocks

Seven weeks later

that marathon in New York

seems easier now

 

Seven weeks later

I saw the sun rise downtown

in a bowl of broth

 

Seven weeks later

there are rats in the backyard

collecting dust bins

 

Seven weeks later

there is dust in my bedroom

collecting sweat drops

 

Seven weeks later

I lost the one photo I

had of us outside
