Picture of the Day

December 26, 2015


empty space

we don't own a car
but i'm a good driver
             --easily enraged
but i keep it together.

i don't own a gun
but it's still fun to plug
a pumpkin with a pistol
                    at 25 paces.

it's the day after Christmas
in Delaware County, Ohio,
a Republican stronghold where
the air shudders with explosions
of unknown origin, crackles
with the cheerful pop-pop-pop
of newly unwrapped weapons,
their well-oiled virgin barrels
warmed for the first time
               after waiting for weeks
beneath the tree, right beside
                     the nativity scene...
