The Election Games
For Halloween, let us all be Catniss
Everdeen. Trump can be Snow — doesn’t need
to know. Do it in our own respective districts
in booths and mail-in ballots, masked like the
avengers that we are. Take aim with pens.
Remove misogynistic men, ourselves from
a dystopian reality show lens,
to which, without consent, we did succumb.
Be mockingjays, accidental species
who found its way when displaced, off the grid
castoffs of society mated with the free,
fringed of a society our voice reclaims.
It is time to play the election games.
