I Actually, John McKernan

Judith Nelson, Aurora II, 1978, 16X20


I ACTUALLY

 

Erased
My vote

Shook the pencil
And screamed
You lied

Scribbled
On the paper ballot
You
Were once an acorn

Words are worth it Only
If they say something
And mean something
To keep the bullets and the knives
Locked up in the closet
