Relax, I shall try…

phone, left at the office
email re-directed to another
time’s come for
away, away, away

first time since
stepping into leadership
September last
has the phone, email
been held, nipped, cut off

this Annus horribilis
misinformed bullshit via
government’s hogtie, expounded via
media’s rude embellishment

then vanished because…
K’s sudden, sorrowful passing
Her laughter, smile absent
a sad, empty office
broken, empty hearts
lessons in our grief
to be happy
no matter pain, situation

through the stress
migraines, searing back pain
halting my love of golf


gratitude finds my soul
in my fiftieth year
good has come
given us
all we need
