Daily missive for Saturday the 23rd of March.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Saturday the 23rd of March.

If there is chaos
On the inside
What hope is there out 
In the open
Under the streetlights
Beneath the gaze
Of a full-fat moon
If I scream
Nothing really changes
People shout from windows
A car horn sounds
Forlorn
In the distance
Where do they go
When the music stops
Condensation clouds
My judgement
Of the truth of things
Especially
As the temperature falls
Barely clad
Thoughts
Are no match
For an autumnal night
Beneath the stars
However brightly they may shine
Climate change
Is not for the faint-hearted
Where was I
When the mayhem
Really started
Perhaps it was before
My time when
There was screaming
From the beginning
Something about
The world
Made no sense
Even then
Perhaps the chaos came
With the transition
From comparative
Safety
To the unpredictability
Of life on the outside
There is no guarantee
Of collective sanity
Take me back
There is a wildness
About human nature
It threatens to
Turn my heart
Into stone
Petrified
For all eternity
