presidential shared guilt absurdity…

we’ve heard this before
like victims of rape are blamed
for being women

a single forget-me-not…

as a poet
i have decided
to
fade away
quite
gracefully
merging
into the woodwork
but
leaving
a rather
irritating stain
deep
into the fibers
of life
not
removable
by sanding
and
far
too costly
to replace
i absolutely
see
no need
for me
to
change
completely
because of a little thing
called
death
