News



It’s funny that  
he bore witness 
to news 
written on stone 
images of deer 
tracks of bear 
and buffalo  
now  
breaking news 
on screens 
that glow 
never mind 
newspapers 
stacked 
in dark corners  
never to see 
the light of day 
trees 
long ago 
felled 
by a whipsaw 
now hanging 
on that restaurant 
wall 
the old man looked 
and sipped his coffee 
and knew
the writing was 
now 
on 
the 
wall.
