Poem a Day -- day 5

Today's mandate -- something you're worried about



Suppose I don't
reach it by nightfall
should I sleep
under a bridge or
take my chances

at a local farmhouse
my contact
tells me they're mostly
partisans here
so the odds are with me

but that's not
what worries me most
human contact
I've had too much of it
too much sex

and too much sharing
confidences
other people's secrets
I don't want
to know what they fear

what they hope the
revolution will bring
don't want to
break the news to them
it never does
