Political Poem #8 (The Kill)                                    

         
for Jessie Glass  


A downtown something to take your mind off
some days I just overload on news, gas,
the price of oil, the increase in health insurance  

the latest FDA product approved that improves
a disease for one person in a thousand
better than a placebo, the usual, the things  

that let us guilt the individual, as we adopt traditions
to disembowel ourselves ceremoniously before
attaining higher class from our upward understanding.
