BLACK FRIDAY


BLACK FRIDAY

“The New Normal”

Twitters tweet about fights
across the country, showing

blurry crowds' backs to camera,
somber crowds facing cameras,

few smiling at what they got
from midnite ordealing.

A few token deals were deep,
some video-game boxes empty,
but some say it's worth it.

Next Year: a virtual, violent
[{Black Friday}] from X-Box

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
