Pending Approval

Posted on

for a while I posted
favorite poems to share
the gorgeous and true
masking-taped to the walls
by drinking fountains
copy machines bathroom doors
all the places we pause
But now there is a New Rule
signs must be approved
and stamped Approved
or be torn down
It’s some small comfort that
Shakespeare and Stafford,
Whitman and Rexroth
and all the others
will never know
if they made the cut
