Voting on a Rainy Day
I went to vote today
after my friend called
because she was so worried
that her candidate wouldn't win.
I didn't especially like any
of the prospective presidents,
so it wasn't that easy,
to say the least.
A large woman,
working for the polls,
stood over me
looking like she'd crack my knuckles
if I didn't vote for the right person.
I told her that she wasn't supposed
to be looking at me voting.
She slightly turned her head away
and I proceeded to make my mark.
They say that we don’t really stop. Molecules are jumping off our bodies as we move through space. Our skin is falling off, as is our hair...
