Battleground

The final week. Virginia is in play
and western Pennsylvania’s tightening
a bit. It’s just a little frightening.
Republicans don’t take Election Day
so lightly as to fold in fair defeat.
The lawyers take positions for the close
as the electorate, exhausted, goes
the gauntlet, calibrated to the beat
of running time. Most likely we will hear
Bin Laden lecture us before it’s through,
the media complicit in a last
confused extortion. Little else to do
when bastards play into the hand of fear
than spit twice on the single stone I cast.
