ELECTION YEAR
(5/15/10)


I hear
it coming
but I don't
know what
to do

a vote
not now worth
the ballot
given
to you

I hope
for real change
and a new direction
toward which
we can look
together

I know
however
this year's no different
no damn dream
on which
to tether

maybe
I'm getting old

maybe
I don't care

maybe
it's because
I'm Independent

maybe
I shouldn't share

my voter
registration card
hangs from
my rear view

whether that
is significant
I'll leave
it to you

I'll go again
because that's
my right

I'll go again
but get drunk
that night
