AugPoWriMo 26

This moment may be unsurvivable
As the storm approaches its next landfall
Many different fronts encroach at once
Before you know what you should focus on
Another face appearing in the crowd
It is okay you should feel tired right now
Limit your intake of disturbing news
Until a creeping numbness overtakes
The notifications on your screen as
The anxiety you have has its own
Existential threat against the stillness
The moon peeking through a broken window
Still only half full as the horizon
Overtakes even all of the distance
