"Poems for February 3, 2020" is a second submission by miserytourism (author of TRUE NAMES). Ever the victor at the art of a good synopsis, the entity known as William H. Duryea expressed: "The following six poems were written on Sunday, February 2, 2020 with the foreknowledge that they would be published on February 3, 2020 as my (late) contribution to Misery Tourism's January "release date" submission theme. My goal was to write poems that would rapidly become meaningless after their date of publication without having the poems themselves disappear or self-destruct.. My hope is that these poems exist in Misery Tourism's archives for years, completely worthless but still present, like non-biodegradable trash." I'd describe the beginning as the nu-wave astrology I'd like to see more of, and hope I see some strange rat art about. Otherwise tune in for farces on American news.
