All the News

by Elouise

Shocked breathless voices,
Familiar cadences of
Deliver slices of today’s
Tragedy, deceit and despair.

Earnest competing voices
Now lost in their world
Rehearse, revisit, rehash
Outlooks and likelihoods
Of better days ahead, or not.

What I really want to know is
Where I am today,
Wandering in my bodily world
With its traces of yesteryears,
Better days behind me or not.
