BEYOND WALKS AND THE FLU
(4/14/17)

she thinks
that I should
write
of greater things

good

evil

altruism

global warming

I tell her
that I neither
have the knowledge
nor the imagination
to attempt
such undertakings

the larger issues
seem complex machines
churning away
in distant
galaxies

I write
about what
I can sense
directly

my expertise
wanes considerably
past
those points
of reference

she turns

leaves

in search
of more profitable
endeavors

I will never
make any money
with mine
