preface of another poem

there is sadness in the air
but this too shall pass
much like the passing of the queen

we stepped out for the first time
in what seemed like a lifetime
lighting candles along the way
chanting songs we learned as children
at the time not knowing what they meant

this isn’t the first time the earth
has been this sick
it’s easy to say we live in interesting times
much more difficult to die
and come back to life year after year

oh yes that’s a whole other story now

november two thousand twenty
