A Portal to Another World

A poem on our relationship with polarized news

He let out a guttural scream
of joy and happiness. Unspeakable emotions
flowing through his bloodstream.

She was told that she could be whatever she wanted,
an idol, baker or even a fighter. But
with veins filled with anger and arteries
clogged with sadness, they chose
to be yahoos who pepper their rodomantade with taradiddles.
It was de rigueur for excessive adulation
but laws, of language were relaxation.

It is such a wonder after all,
for such a small screen to bring so much joy.
Yet, I refuse to believe that
those shouts were signs of happiness.
