If not the United States

Before this wretched year
expires, in which the most
fulsome accommodations to
monstrosity we have ever
seen have become ordinary
assumptions of getting by
in America, my guess is
that many people are lay-
ing down in some cabinet,
to be discovered in some
future generation, their
wishes for what may have

       I would have wished for
       more refuge for people,
       not less, in some coun-
       try I'd want to be mine.
