Poetry: The Worriers’ Guild

The Worriers’ Guild
–Philip F. Deaver
From How Men Pray

Today there is a meeting of the
Worriers’ Guild,
and I’ll be there.
The problems of Earth are
         to be discussed
         at length
         end to end
         for five days
         end to end
         with 1100 countries
         all with an equal
         some wearing turbans
and smocks
         and all the men will
         and the women
         with or without notes
         in 38 languages
         and nine different
species of logic.
Outside in the autumn
         the squirrels will be
         chattering and
throughout the town
they aren’t organized yet.
