Election by Tricia Marcella Cimera

I’m Afraid of Americans, David Bowie


A literary magazine recently

published a poem

about a presidential candidate

that started a debate.

Some poets liked it but

some got furious,

shouted with disgust.

They ground that poem

into dust.  Then they

ground that poet

into blood

& bits.


When poets start cutting

each other’s throats —


has won.
