after years of misinformation
among so-called
strategic voters
so-called liberals & progressives who believe
that staying in the coveted loop of pseudo influence
somehow creates change
or rectifies the historical record
even while arguing for manifest destiny
of all things
     an exceptional ism part
     of 'historical development'
and seeing exploitation as
so twentieth century
or the raping of the earth
as balanced accommodation
to the corporate state

the ojibwe still bleed from the bounty hunters

i find myself uneasy but still resolute
reaching out
with my one inalienable vote
not obliging
power brokers
and empty suits
