Tide Turn


a ‘let me explain’ prefix
to a disingenuous tirade
of dated global warming
it’s time for sleep again;
– had to have been truly
awake when it happened

if you missed the import
of what we’ve just had –
don’t bother to wake; it’s
too stressful to accept it
a last shuddered breath
before the tide turns
