Thanks to a landmark Supreme Court ruling, same sex marriage is now legal across the country. That was the inspiration for this week’s Typewriter Rodeo poem by Kari Anne Roy.
the four horsemen lay down their cards
and look up
through the jagged maw
through the steaming hellmouth
Hey, says War, you see that?
What? asks Pestilence, the Supreme Court thing?
I saw it, says Famine. Who cares.
Seriously, says Death. Go fish.
and so they pick up their cards
resuming their game
not caring one bit
who gets married
