News?

by Caroline Whalley

news?
Though reluctant, it is that time in my day 
for intrusion of outside to inside
That gaggle from You-tube, twitter and cable
News?  yet is it able to pass any bar, 
to make it noteworthy, exemplary
Is it wheat, does it inform and nourish me
Only I can winnow, my truth from conspiracy.

Day 21, of ‘one a day’ poems. By the end of April 2021, 30 poems will create a series. Each poem covers a fragment, a snippet taken consecutively throughout a day.
