Through this catastrophe

Old ones ought to be explorers
Why? Because we are less attached
to raising family, making a name
because we’d be good at exploring
Old lawyers ought to be poets
Because we’d be good at it
less attached
seeing wider and farther
having, no being, compassion
able to see
the special in the ordinary
the business of living
in the catastrophe of the day
Let us guess that our business
is to live through this catastrophe
maybe to envision some other side
some other possibility
something lifting up
woven and lasting
