and yet another sigh.

today the paper came

crumbling under the weight of ‘rape news’

occupying almost a third of all its space

for once i think of unsubscribing

to avoid the daily disappointment

over and over and over

and again

but then wonder

if only it were that easy

if only tuning out could declutter our world as much as our lives.
