Urine on the Evening News

John McKernan
Prairie Schooner, Vol. 87, No. 1 (Spring 2013)

Of course
It stinks

Why do you think
They always advertise
Clorox

& Tide
& Ivory Snow & Joy
& Cosmic Drain Cleaner
& Vacation Cruises & IVs

On even more channels If they didn’t
You’d have to smell the wars
You don’t believe in anyway
Or listen to that endless hypnotic voice fill
The silence inside a large bag of Cheetos
