The Leader's plan
is more of a demand,
forcing them to give
up all reading by
4:00 PM today. He has
been on edge for days,
skin feeling sensitive
as if tickled with
a feather. We need growth–
larger office buildings,
he shouts, not a country
of intellects. Release
only those who are willing
to put in manual labor
and stay loyal.
I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York.
My goal is to create and share poetry with others
who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve
in you, and feel your sparks as well.

I like your use of “4” , bravo. Most bosses want more manual labor, as long as that labor is not coming from them. 😀
Exactly! Thanks, Raivene!
