Prop Up By Lauren Suchenski

Prop up

Prop up the
Propa-grandizing/ the proper use
Of grandio-sizing braggadocio/
Bigly, or little-ly, or literally
The little-est amount of listening
That is necessary

Fine-toothed comb and tooth-combed records,
Fighting with tooth and nail for every vote
Not yet nailed down
Fire-hot-wind voice and all the words
Still smearing themselves across
The image of your image – 10 TV’s heigh
And 8 platitudes wide

Red, white and weary
Of the wild indifference to
Justice/
Weary of the fight for just-us
and the ferocity of the fight
Still looming
