We will get to the other side
I say this not because the daily grind
demands my attention like a crying child
or that I am a swan paddling furiously
beneath the calm of a summer's lake.
Nature has a way of balancing itself.
Venice's waterways are clear enough to see fish
and wild otters roam boldly in locked-down cities.
You think your eyes are playing tricks on you
but the trick is to close your eyes.
We are already there.
