Lines from Club Charles

xii. la palma

Long wild year
sure to disappoint
everything except reflections
rigging truth to be what else:

Heavy days, away with words,
110% humidity,
nothing but gone.
Still in the August daze,
limbs overreaching their interest
for a taste of something 
more than allowed--

tests inconclusive
state secrets stolen
stocks on the rise
the bubble goes pop….

We all face La Palma.
If it comes if it doesn't,
like the worst kinds of wars--
the ones we don't know we are fighting.
