Leukemia

I’ve spent an illuminating evening surfing the web.
My secret favorite site has not updated in awhile.
The Arab world expects Israel to attack Iran sometime before the American elections.
If someone had hit us today
another big one
the bigger big one we’ve been promised
had it been today
This site was saddening; see “last entry.”
Here I hiked up three days but was turned back by the weather.
In London, found a happy couple, him and her.
almost 48 hours since the helicopters came by night and circled, circled, circled,
circled Brighton Beach and probed our underwear drawers with dangling geiger counters
(what else were we to think?)
Revisited a Russian boy’s Mad Day; see “3. August.99.”
and swung through Waldorf, Maryland.
had that furious 4 AM torment of blade, fuel, and air been the overture
had today—or yesterday, now—been the show
So many people.
I think it would have been a blow we’d have been obliged to take
right on the kisser
and no backsies.
