“slave” by Sean Schemelia

 brown mary, the only choice
on out; the only thing to stick
vigilant's beyond me, just like old brother Frank said.
 OmnipOtent wOrdplay what's real what
is nofabrication.  so schooleft him slower than
an interview might (imply)suggest.

     sluggish, at first
       running out fortyfive minute intervals
CLASS TIMETICKING to a close on in
to a time card, talking loudly twith UNKLE SAM,
that equal opportunity shithead.
                    LIESWORD.  Is the word
what betrays the speak er.
 CALLED by the live studio audience,



Subject of God Swill a Lone.
