I Have News For You – the unattainable

Do you see that creamy, lemon-yellow moon?
There are some people, unlike me and you,
who do not yearn after fame or love or quantities of money as
unattainable as that moon;
thus, they do not later
have to waste more time
defaming the object of their former ardor.

From “I Have News For You” by Tony Hoagland

Dogs chase their tails, too. Unlike people, though, they don’t seem to fret about their past, or carry resentments about things which didn’t work out the way they wanted.

I have news for you—there are people who get up in the morning and cross a room
and open a window to let the sweet breeze in
and let it touch them all over their faces and bodies.
