Chicken Wire

Chicken Wire

He was talkin’
about free range chickens,
labeled free,
but still in fences

when we came across
in of all places, Marin,
a sign saying, “Trump 2016,”

nailed high upon
a tall tree
by a large ranch,
enclosed in barbed wire fence,

so I got out,
and started walking.

Two birds flew from my hands
as I strolled past
the sign for the candidate
I wish we’d all dump.
