6 PM News

Someone is shooting
people on the highways of
southern California again.
The leaks are bleeding
ugliness all over

already-ugly news. Back
East (a place I’ve never been
and hence is mystery) digs
and digs to get out from

under all that snow.
The Ides are here,
Caesar is centuries dead,
and we are all just sitting around

still watching the clumsy fall
of Rome in our hi-def flat
screen technicolor comas
wondering how the sad

movie will end. Really, we
knew it all along. The disasters just
make it feel more like home.
