Like grazing cattle
behind a barbed wire fence:
The Land of the Free.

Give The Spectators Of America Their Due

The place wants
footprints
that won’t leave
an impression,

stores
of non-moving
parts
for the engine,

heads 
bowed 
to corporate 
brands,

and hands
trained
to clap 
on command.

Give the 
spectators
of America
their due,

whatever
this poet
or that one
tells you.
