A Fly in My Chardonnay

18 dead after a shooting in Maine.
Putin threatens capability of a massive nuclear attack.
Chinese coast guard boats ram Filipino coast guard boats.
Children die in Gaza.
And the Ukrainian war goes on . . . .

Meanwhile next door
Dev and Chaz, parents of three,
froth over horrors of brown grass, disparage their neighbor
because, surely, someone (else) must be blamed for this tragedy;

concretizing again the reality: 
sometimes you don’t have to be blind not to see.
