the politics of poetry

the politics

of poetry

are no less puzzling

than the

pathology of purple states

prospering in an otherwise

polarized democracy

or the mighty pen

declaring victory

over the sword

while defiant actions

claim to speak louder

than words

all the while

love-struck teenagers

find meaning in the ephemera

and go though life

as catch-22’s

with red blood cells

in this sea

of contradiction

we call life —

sink or swim

or laugh

trying.
