Jennifer MacBain- Erasure poems



time for a riddle

He repeat(s) pigs

says dogs

breasts disgust

at level real

a working wife

is a whore, a

shattering kick

a little less

each day

which is she?





heavy first-ness // her handlers // positioned her // a  stable // decorated                     long


Tuesday night // her sniveling // all her whiffed // a strong     ground game assault//who called

to play // fully              tipped



Erasures created from the article “Why Hillary Clinton Couldn’t Win Over Female Voters,” by Emily Jane Fox (published online, 11/10/16) Vanity Fair.
