Neighborhood Association by Kris Bluth

You can let your leaves grow sodden
and thick on the lawn, but if you really
want to get ornery, go ahead
and leave your signs up in the front
window for a week or two after
Election Day.  That way, you're bound
to piss off 48.1% of the people passing by.
Kris Bluth lives in Eugene, Oregon and spends his evenings falling asleep to a DVD of Mystery Science Theater 3000.  His poems have most recently appeared in Every Day Poets, Denali, Groundwaters, and Doves & Serpents.
