here’s to you, bill

when there is no grand gesture,
maddeningly,
the world does not end.

sometimes,
instead–
a tropical depression sets in,
camps out,
and dumps rain on already saturated ground.

so even if there was
a
grand
gesture,
maybe it has no where to go.
the bayou is already too full–
creating blinders of magnolia leaves
and
debris from the last storm.

the world still does not end.
it, in fact,
continues on at exactly the same pace.
