ether

some days you can read and hear and think all kinds of things
like how permafrost is melting
and that methane is even more dangerous than carbon dioxide
and how the coral reefs are bleaching
and this will be bad for algae fish
bad for all of us
and then you watch some national election coverage and think
what a dog and pony show (no disrespect to dogs or ponies)
and you're about to drift off to the land of nod
after a day of not the best news of the world
and a kitten nestles on top of the duvet on your toes
and you remember why things however messed up
are lovely
and worth swimming for
