“LET US HAVE PEACE”
It appears that I have arrived home
from a long day of shopping. I don’t know
how this could be—I haven’t been shopping today.
I picked up a bottle of dish soap
on my way home from the opera,
but I would hardly call that shopping.
It wasn’t that dramatic. The opera, I mean.
But I could also be talking about buying the dish soap,
which was indeed a minor act
compared to the French Revolution, say,
or the founding of Popular Mechanics magazine.
Most wars are dramatic (in a bad way, of course),
and I’ve heard that some people find the Olympics
dramatic, which is fine with me, but I’m not sure
drama is the big fun party it’s made out to be.
In fact, I know it’s not. I’ll prove it:
That opera I went to? It was cancelled
on account of all the waterfowl swarming the stage.
