A Room of My Own: On Both Sides of the Longest Border

a tanka set written to these shameless politicians

Trump's audio
to find votes in Georgia
gets loud and louder ...
I sort through crumpled balls
of poetry in the bin

FYI: The Washington Post, Jan. 3: "I just want to find 11,780 votes:" In extraordinary hour-long call, Trump pressures Georgia secretary of state to recalculate the vote in his favor.

inthistogether --
one by one
politicians like red bats
fly south in winter darkness

FYI: The red bat, an example of a "long distance migrant," can fly over 600 miles to its winter destination. And to the best of this covidholic's knowledge, Canada, a country with the highest rate of long term care deaths, has the most number of shameless highest-ranking politicians (Federal MPs, Senators and provincial MPPs) "caught" travelling over holidays. For more information, read Here’s A [Growing] List Of Canadian Politicians Caught Travelling Over Holidays, Huffingtonpost, "Politics," Jan. 3

this cold night offers me help
a talking raven and the man
in the Oval Office
