I comprehend our planet’s sick, but here
and now appearances are all benign.
The gardens bloom, the sky is blue and clear,
the drivers and pedestrians align
in local courtesy. It’s hard to fear
catastrophe when every view is fine.
Shipped fruit and radiation rot within –
reminding me of death beneath the skin.

(Ottava Rima)
