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.
