a dearth of earth

    a dearth of earth

for i am no longer listening
to news of global warming,
about wars and pestilence,
about your ... ‘or else!’    so
yes, allow a dearth of earth
to darken my empty purse;
allow that a sun may shine 
on the loneliest of days   so
besotted this belonging lies,
drying under the skies of an
acceptance hanging to dry
on a penultimate cry of ‘time’.
