NaPoWriMo, April 17

Let’s see if I can write a poem

in the middle of chaos.

Yelling in the background,

Sirens,

A call from some random person

thinking the place I work

has a needle exchange.

Frequent notifications

from various news outlets

informing me

of President Toddler’s

latest clownery

and the latest death toll.

Daughter talking nonstop

about a violent anime

she’s found

to fill the silence of days.
