i wake up this morning
and everyone's all,
DID YOU FEEL THE EARTHQUAKE
and i'm like, huh?
and they say THE NEW ENGLAND EARTHQUAKE OH MY GOD
and i blink bemusedly and say, what earthquake?
and they respond
the windows were rattling i fell down and couldn't walk!
my bed was shaking!
(not like magic fingers)
and others chime in
they're saying on the news it was felt from eastern canada
all the way down to washington dc!
they're saying on the news
IT WAS A 5.1!
and we saw
on the news
other 5.1 quakes have wiped out third world countries!
ARE YOU OKAY?
and i smile to myself
because, like a true californian
i slept through the earthquake
and everyone's fine, even at the epicenter
and people are making such an amusing fuss.

(we'll ignore the fact that plattsburgh, ny is 200 miles away from me.)
