Apprehensive!

We took down our flag in the front yard and lowered and furled our flag in the back yard.  We removed the signs for Trump, Kim, Chang.  We are faceless like everyone else in our neighborhood.  We don’t want to stand out, cause attention, be canceled.  Or worse.

We have a supply of food, water, paper goods, gasoline, batteries, even a camping stove.  The threat of angry mobs raging in the streets was at the tip of tongues, the bylines of editorialists, the tripe of talking heads.  We didn’t buy ammunition, but we were concerned.

Today, God sent us a sign.

His will be done and all is well.

  1. I MUST ADMIT THAT IF WE IN POETRY CLASS WISH TO FOLLOW THE LEAD OF SENSATIONALITY, A COMBATIVE FUTURE MIGHT BE OUR FUTURE. SINCE WE HAVE ALREADY HAD THAT FUTURE, TO SOME EXTENT, WITH RIOTS CONCERNING RACIAL RELATIONS, PERHAPS WE HAVE BEEN HAVING THE FUTURE ALREADY. POSSIBLE… ? CONSIDERING THAT WE ARE, TO JUST A LITTLE BIT OF A DEGREE, PERHAPS OUR POETRY COULD BE USED AS AN ANTIDOTE. AT ANY RATE, VIOLENCE CAN ONLY BECOME OUR DESTINY IF WE ALLOW IT. STOCKING UP ON ANTI-RIOT THINGS; MAKING STATEMENTS THAT IMPLY WE ARE READY TO DEFEND OURSELVES, DOES NOT HELP.
