Low Pressure Swirl

Let's laugh ourselves
past the horror of what we hear
and see, let's generate the joy we need to
overcome our visions of doom and dimming
futures, there's a market for this type of thing.

Unplug these eyes and ears from the news cycle
shelter this brain from the carving wind and waves
of fear and terror and envy and from the influence of gods
who stunt and sanction systems of one over another.

Refuse beards and tattoos and too-tight shirts, you crotchety old bastard,
get back in the house, peel an onion, listen to the rain and pray for the people
in public places trying to impress while boring each other silly .

There are pale creatures beneath the crust of the earth
biding their time and rallying their forces.
