A Portland Poet on Impeachment

This may be the year Bush and Cheney ARE impeached
Impeach



This is the year we unseat the scoundrels.

This is the year their lies lace up their faces like tight shoes.
This is the year their greed turns rancid,
removes the tin chairs scraping the floors

This is the year we undo the necklace of wires,
the choker that has sewn eyes
inside the garments of our houses

This is the year we create a trapeze of will,
one to the other, the year the map of our
resistances connects, the coastline comes clear

This is the year we arc like whales
in the shifting seas, turn the wheels of peace
