Today, I was musing over an idea
Whom I would have liked
As a companion to talk to,  you know,
This and that, share some thoughts
Of importance,
That I‘ve meditated for years,
Discuss urgent matters –
Third World War, or
Sixth Extinction, or
Seventh Decade –
So, I started to mentally review
All the acquaintances, relatives, friends,
Wife, children...
No-one was found.
Lastly,  I went to a shop and bought me
A bottle of Chardonnay.
Listen, Chardonnay, --
as we sink
into the chasm of despair
while the world around us
becomes ever more
cruel and unpredictable
we will remember poetry
that we lost
and this will be the last thing
to remember

— The End —
