Man in Managua


And on the distant waves

sail countless ships,

And anthems in new tongues

I hear saluting me.


It was the contra

diction. The word

freedom used for stone

cold killers. Thrillers

for those Young

Republicans I debated

at Miami University.

At the restaurant

near the Sandinista HQ

I told your brother

and I’m telling you

It was a sin

I didn’t win.
