From the Rehab Center

Published November 12, 2021 by Nan Mykel

Halloo, outside world.

Nan here, reporting from the Laurels.

No one’s reading this. Oh well,

I’ll keep this secret, then.


It all started when my planet began

shedding its alternative universes,

and I emerged with intent

to return to an enlightened

old-fashioned hymn-singing

religion, in lieu of

anything more promising.


Rapidly proving ourselves unable

to steer without ending

in hog slop, I’m headed for the

Riverside, where I  can wash my

sins away and study war

no more.


Animal kind has comforted itself

forever, perhaps, with fireside images

to bear the basically

uncontrollable roiling desert.


We learn in the crib  that life isn’t just,

and poke fun at those who think it is.

Since I have a choice I’ll take the

New Testament, not the Old one.
