War poem (2)

Never a dull moment, it seems.

First, my beloved cousin took his life.

Shortly afterwards, a storm raged over the city

killing a man, just around the corner from my house.

Then, a hostage crisis downtown –

only hundred meters from where

my youngest son goes to school.

And now:

the threat of nuclear annihilation.

Who said nothing ever happened

at all?
