Connect the Dots

Scour the news for an entirely uninteresting story. Consider how it connects to your life. Write about that.

Everything interests me, that’s my problem:

I’m especially fond of lies —

News has these, plus occasional facts

Like who just garnered┬ásuch-and-such prize —


So try as I might, I cannot find

Anything that doesn’t interest me:

The business news? No that’s stuff’s gripping.

And sports is all-but-ecstasy —


This trait just might be why I’m so beleaguered,

And look as though I have been through bad weather:

I scour the news, and I only see

That everything, everything fits
