the best and worst

 not long after the worst of it 
 we see folks make the best of it; 
 the moral universe, a kite 
 carried upon amnesia -- 

 because, wherever we might walk 
 was a scene of violence at one time 
(or more than one, more likely, 
 given who we humans are) 

 it's we who choose where we will we look, 
 our focus, our reality -- 
 for what's no longer bad, is good; 
 and what we can enjoy, we should
