What Sustains Us

In these bleak times
What sustains us?

Not science.
Surely not politics.

Our connection to each other.
A smile behind a mask,
A good morning,
An acknowledgment of our 
Predicament.

Virtual, high tech;
We work at intimacy
And as simple as 
Willow napping with me,
Samantha bounding towards me, 
And Cathy, the best friend-
lover a person could have.

This morning on the river,
Perseverance in the rain.
Mistakes and unforced errors.
Live to fish another day.
