I read the instruction:
“There are no plans for large scale
civil disobedience at the inauguration.
To be prudent, however, you should
prepare for the possibility that you
might be arrested. Don’t carry anything
that could be construed as a weapon.”
And so, being prudent,
I leave all of my poems
at home for the day.
