Zero News

I watch a news programme with the lady
that has brought me up
a woman in her 80’s that keeps a tree log
inside her room
just beside the door frame
ready, one she can use
on a burglar

I know that
if anyone tried it on, my instincts
hear the whole house;
and then, good bye thief.
I tap out the articles, make us a tea,
and discuss the strange world with her
just now they were talking about vinyl sales, ebola, and children.
