Gently, gently

Though my bones are broken,
I will stand erect for you
while you’re in this room.

Would a nicer house help us?
One with rooms farther away,
but with furniture placed more warmly?

Each day,
the headlines grow more stale,
and I despair for a gentler world.


Art: Litzlberg am Attersee, 1915, by Gustav Klimt
