lenten journal: the grace of never mind

the grace of never mind

the oceans are rising
the sky is falling
I am careening through
an obstacle course
of obligations and
overdue whatevers
I have unread e-mail
unanswered notifications
unwashed laundry
and unmade recipes
everything’s important
and requires my attention
then there’s ukraine
and war and washington
have you seen today’s headline
I’m not sure I want to
but the guns and the walls
and injustice rolling down
I need to fill up the tank
and answer some texts
get ready for tomorrow
remember . . . something
it’s a lot to ask, I know, but
can we go for a walk?

Peace,
Milton
