    i could see it from my top-floor digs.
    i could walk around safely.
    that was years ago.
    i could walk around safely lots of places years ago.
    i was oblivious.
    and largely in denial.
    made my own reality.
    confused peace and safety for something else.

    funny how death sneaks into the daily picture.

    Today there's "WEST BARNSTABLE: A Centerville man is facing charges after allegedly making a gun-related threat at Cape Cod Community College. Barnstable Police say 51-year-old Mark Jones was attempting to register for a class this morning when he was told it was already full. That’s when Jones reportedly told the college employee to give him the names of the students so he could “shoot them to make room.” As he was leaving, another employee heard jones say something about a shotgun. Sgt. Sean Sweeney says officers located Jones at his home a short time later, where he said he was only joking. He was arrested and charged with threat to commit a crime, threat to commit murder and disturbing a school assembly."

    what's left--libraries, veterinarians, cemeteries ?
