Plasma Globe

Tim Kahl

rowers in the bay
follow leaflet left in boat
on how to puff out
cheeks like hamsters

gun designers at
National Gallery
attack portraits of
Jim Beam and Captain Morgan

the Eeyore of journalists
frustrates advocates of
non-traditional restrooms

affluent kids wander
another six decades of winter
yell Build the damn fence

school marshalls suddenly
end sympathetic fast
with cancer patients

plasma globe understands
how to win epic battle to
capture Americans' eyeballs
