figure out why millions of voters
who have finished their primary and caucus
rituals
their voices all analyzed and deposited
as small raindrops
in the rising oceans
haven't deployed the green kayaks and moved on
yet
abandoning their abusive relationships
in their respective (un)democratic & trump-republic
parties of
money laundering schemes

i've been advised that all of that
is 'in process'
which i take to mean
there's still hope
provided we don't land on some small remote island
and declare utopia

so forward on
keep paddling to the bittersweet end
& watch for sandbars
