THE SCHOOL, THE BANK, THE POST OFFICE

Teen years.
The school
is flying
the flag
half-mast.
What
happened?
The three
channels
and cable
if you
were lucky
report
the event.

Child-rearing
years.
The bank
is flying
the flag
half-mast.
Who died?
The three
channels,
cable, and
the novelty
of 24-hour
news
cover
the event.

Senior-moment years. The Post Office is flying the flag
half-mast. What, who, how many, how often? The three
channels, cable, 24-hour news and the Internet echo the event.

Unfortunately, you are driving in your car, can’t find out,
even with your pet, aka smart phone, leashed next to you
charging. So you may be forced to do some real human

interaction and have to enter automatic doors, buy stamps,
and get your questions answered but you don’t brake. At your
destination, like a wagging tail, you look things up and your e-pet

barks and
meows
earlier
events
as well as
your
interests
based on
your
last surf

or are there
too many
dog houses
it’s harder
to find the
current one
so you stop
searching,
let the screen
go blank
and mute

as you
appreciate
a lifetime
of change
that is also
the same
as you
rely on
half-masts
to be news
enough.
