Habitual Offender

(From The Foghorn, by Ray Bradbury)

the hardest habit to break
is screaming, shouting, accusing
and terrifying, all the noises
that blare through your head
like a day of fog heavier
than a winter blanket,
foghorn calling night and day:

not caring
if somewhere on the far side
of the world a monster
is awakening, a child is stirring;

then taking to the waves
to meet you halfway
