The Morning Reading: "And this great task remaining"


The President Rehired
~ Idra Novey

And the president, rehired, stood upon a fiscal cliff.

And a woman at a hurricane shelter said the waiting.

And then the bus.

And then another bus.

And this great task remaining before us.

And Iran grabbing up gold.

And the trouble with gold.

Of holding onto it.

And the president, rehired, heard what had been Far Rockaway was still a sand bar in the dark.

And this great task remaining before us.

And the president, rehired, heard about the oceans rising faster.

And the trouble with gold.

And this great task remaining.

And the president rehired, and the oceans rising.

Now.
