Hush, Hush, Wait

Just when we know
something important
just has to happen,

just at the date
that looms importantly,
the great big anniversary

of the last seismic
shift in our landscape
of ordinary living

the sly world goes grey
and quiet, almost
ashen, and whispers

to us, "Not this,
not this time, not
now. Hush, hush, wait. . . ."
