The Prow of a ship
The End of the world
The year, the day advance
And I with them.

My breath is caught
The way home is easy
I am grateful for all
I have, I am, I know.

Today is the end of was
The beginning of will be
My perch is precarious
But I hang on tight.

Do send that poem in to the New Yorker and your favourite magazines. Now is the nexus we should be in...the Buddhists have that right.

Yes, first dose last Tuesday, Moderna. Slightly sore arm, but otherwise easy.
