when i got into work friday morning
a co-worker declared she was having
a richard morning
to whit
after dodging psychotic drivers
and hands outstretched from those
living on the street
and that time being short
[i was running late again]
after hearing on NPR
that cavendish bananas
[i have two every morning
for breakfast]
are monocultured and might
be wiped out because of climate change
and disease
that 42% of bee colonies have collapsed
[bees pollinate a lot of our food crops]
that by the time i hit the office i was
severe and feeling mean
our world is in such a bad place
she, my co-worker, meant,
goddamn and fuck it all
it is a good day to be alive
i was forced to agree
