Newly Wise

 

The comet has been passing

I haven’t seen it

There’s too much ambient light

Too many clouds

Or too much haze

I did pretty well with Hale-Bopp

And I’ve seen good photographs of this one

That might be all there is

 

At least for days we haven’t been

Waiting for the end

As was the way with comets’ appearing

Reappearing

We know our plagues
