TODAY, THE SUN SHINES
(3/1/14)


I feel
worry

anxiety

dread

slowly
creeping in

but I look
around
and see
no immediate
threat

somebody
has placed
these misapprehensions
in my mind

I apparently
sensed
or remembered
something out there
in society's vast array
of misinformation
that momentarily
stood my hair
on end

they lie

they sell

they exaggerate

I'll say
that they're
full of shit
but still I wonder
if there may be
some truth
in their proclamations

I have doubt

I doubt
my instincts

my only
abstract fear
should be the source
of my next
meal

that
is my
reality

and since
I am
most surely
well fed

that
is my sanctuary
as well
