The Age of Nancy
David J. Daniels
In a little known
the crazy earth
crack jagging the salt mines,

debate in huddles as the fissure grows,
as the earth begins to gurgle.
if whether what they suspect
themselves, a sort of side-effect, be their own
of black tar and mucus
this is, after all, the Age of Otherness
announces, let’s send Lansing forward – Lansing,
their ranks. Though in my warped, blown VHS,

out now across the barren crust: Careful
in! Don’t get too close
there, Nancy! But this being
of course, Nancy always does.
