Tonight’s News

I didn’t watch the news tonight.

I just don’t want to know.

I don’t want to see the anguish.

I don’t want to hear the woe.

I don’t want to learn about

the latest thing that we must dread.

I don’t want to hear what’s coming

with its direful, speedy spread.

I’m just sitting on my sofa

buffeted away from sound,

tucked away from any further word

with silence all around.
