The Silly Season

That time of year

or campaign season

when the candidates

stir the old stew

though it has surely gone bad

from exposure to light

so we get it on discount

from second and third string operatives

waiting for the next relaunch

makes one envious of insomniacs

words overwhelm

or numb the mind

letters floating in the air

forming signs

pop art

and platitudes.

Not much of it worth reading

or hearing

sad to say.

Going south for the duration

see you after Labor Day.
