Somehow stranded in Ohio,
known for rusted factories and politics,
America condensed: I could be everywhere.
But that’s not true for everyone in everywhere.
Dubose, Crawford, Rice, Thomas: Ohioans
all, but something in the politics
won’t let them live. Sometimes politics
leaves 15 dead. Cincinnati’s nowhere
everywhere else, but it made Ohio
scared 15 years ago. Now Ohio politics are everywhere.
