February 13, 2017, Prescott-
Snow besets the Northeast,
Rain fills the Southwest’s waterways,
Dust retreats, into mud.
The Alt-Right cries foul,
The Prog-Left yells foul words,
Civility retreats, into a cave.
Strength looks like force,
Humility is seen as weakness,
Sensibility retreats, into a whirlwind.
I am listening quietly,
You wince at my expression,
Perception retreats, into personal mythology.
