There we all were, numb and waiting, holding our signs, not making eye contact

“I am uncoiled and lax, an empty vessel, critically appraising advertisements, making mix tapes, playing an unplugged Korean-made Telecaster, honking at the kids playing basketball in the cul-de-sac, digging cat toys out from under the bureau, going commando, making ice, buying Scotch tape, skimming, shaving, squeezing. I am an American, Senator, no longer waiting for the small red light but instead waiting for your call to action.”
