The News of the Day

It’s about controlling time,

and not - 


blowing down Buffalo Yard Rd.,

tap tap


of the mind,

beeches hustling


in the long summer’s wind - 

there’s no Art - 


only rot - 

only making a living


like nutsedge 

reproduces 


when you pull it up - 

the long road 


is a good one.

Livin’ fast


ain’t easy, and nothin’s

free.  That’s why


there ought to be

human entitlements


that secularize society

against greed; against the dogmas


presented

by race and class - 


vis a vis

poverty - 


and the news of the day.

Words becoming meaningless


like summer ending,

just a turn and a glance


down that            long              dark              hallway
