Good News

Usually the saying goes:

No news is good news.


In the poet’s case that’s

Not relevant

As news is all around him

On the world stage of

Everyday life.

At times too many phone calls

Chase the poet

And thus he becomes irritated:

Friends he still accepts

But adverts and sales clerks –


In the stillness of cellular phones

And without the turbulent doing

Of kids

He may at least finish his latest

Stories about walking the periphery

Of Vienna’s fields and woods.

Good News.
