Something isn’t happening

We’re all stuck on hold.

Old homeless man in Montreal

The pioneers thrust out
+++with their usual
+++armed vengeance,
no clear purpose
except to recreate
+++the old world
+++in the new.

The rest of us wait
+++fearfully or
+++cautiously,
wanting the new world

but not knowing
+++how to enter it
+++without destroying it.
