As Martha Tilton Walks Alone

in an orderly fashion,
never understood it,
protesting at this place
at this time
to cause minimal
to the general public,
isn’t the whole point to debilitate
and disrupt?
To cripple the system?
To force the screws back to the bargaining
I don’t get the protesters these days,
they seem to have lost their way,
legislated to express certain grievances
on certain dates
for a specific period

and then,
only with the route
cleared by city officials.

and the Cubans had their Revolution
and then the balls of the world
crawled back up

Sock drawers should house bran cereals
and laminated bowel movements.
Cigarette lighters mating
with chimpanzees,
space junk falling to earth
like metallic NASA

have seen…

The tall legs of the giraffe
like grandfather clocks
now tired of
