Initial thoughts

When you left the car this morning
I was sniping about something or other
anxious about getting to work on time.
You were sleepy and grumpy
and probably a few other dwarves.
Moments later I was cursing at the stupid truck driver
who refused to drive more than 15 miles an hour
or move out of the way.
While I was in this fine form,
people were being blown up
in London, just a few stops up the Northern Line
from where I lived half a lifetime ago.
They say the death toll has reached 40, and it will probably
continue to rise. It would have happened
even if we had better morning
even if I was a better girlfriend today.
When terrorists attacked us
we were home together, supporting
each other. It’s lonely to be left
with only NPR and stupid truck drivers
when people are dying.
