"Mes de los Muertos"

Evening Broadcast

By Gary Glauber

Evening Broadcast

This current
internecine strife,
result of bloated egos
floating downstream
willy-nilly, full of
important hidden agendas.
Back after the tease.

loudest sinner
gets first dibs on absolution
from a hearing-challenged
puppet-master, forever
unspooling strings from
precocious tangle.

Chaos is style,
dim lamp to light
a path to progress,
the hit & myth
of knuckleball's journey
from press release
to catcher's mitt.

at the stand,
at the ready,
& still purchase
eludes a nation,
stalled in fog
of clever rhetoric.

While straw men
burn in forests
against green screens
changing, going viral,
it's thrown back
to smiling anchor
we are complicit
in this together
& wishing all
another good night.
