(From 1986)

.

It screams a common wail

at night

while we in separate sleep

hear cries

of banshees calling for a mate

or

noon whistles – time for lunch

or

warnings of war

or

a bad opera

and

then we awaken

from our dreams

it’s someone else’s problem

we shrug our collective shoulders

and drift back

into the sleep

of apathy.
