sirens

There were so many
So many sirens today
Screaming emergency
When maybe
It
 Isn’t
                Maybe
Everything will just be okay
Oh say
It’s all
Going to be okay
I wanted
I wanted
To warn you
Those sirens
So false and glittering
Get out now
That black water
Swallows us
We deserve to swim
In a lake of peace
With waterfalls
And the wherewithal
To keep
Some semblance of grace
Don’t make me trace out
These phantoms for you
My love is true
I know when to walk away
