historic flood

Historic flood. 
There are a few books unread on my
bookshelf and they will stay that way,
I needn´t read everything…printed. 

My depression hangs in the landscape
streaks on dusty window panes tell me 
the obvious: clean me now!

I wait for the pharmacy to open, after
lunch break, hope it is not full of women    
talking about pills, illnesses and diets. 

I´m not watching TV today I need not 
know more about the storm every one 
talks about…man, have I seen it worse!   

Soon I will be stopped by a hero telling
me he was in NY during the histrionic 
storm that made a governor legendary.    

The apothecary should be open now,
better hurry and I don´t have to worry 
what the newspapers say.

    Very honest work that you have penned..This has been a trying time for areas of our country..It has to be depressing for those caught in the middle of the worst of it..I hope that you did not get caught without you meds during the storm..I am glad that I chose this one to read today..Sara
