The Rest of Us #1

  

There continues ground incursions

 

Children rush playgrounds, death curling screams,

liberty permits it, bound souls freed, rebuffed sequestration

 

Martians are here. One by one appearing, scurrying

up bathroom mirror, intractable, irritable, wife experiencing

excited delirium. Peripatetic migrants

 

 

Yankee stadium venerated while vacated

 

Dark chocolate laced with sea-salt, negro ballplayers, they are

honored, era bygone, diversity, equity, inclusion; Civil Rights

 

a past, history teacher’s nomenclature, colored people,

people of color the new linguistic, foul balls occur occasionally,

Wild West still being won. Dark chocolate here to stay
