PROCLAMATION

We hesitate herein
to emancipate the trick—but now think 
it perfectly consonant

to admit—America
gets built
like this—every time an Eagle sings

Take It Easy—

overhead 
in falsetto
on a waiting room radio—

another built-to-be
perpetually
almostdone highway

cambered and jack-
hammering from suburb to suburb—so much less
sober

and circumspect 
than the old legend
is—nonetheless

unanimously
re-
branded—Abraham Lincoln.
