    Default The Jury Pool (CTG)

    The Jury Pool

    I've begun this poem in the Quiet Room
    of the Baltimore City Courthouse;
    the name is a joke given the periodic

    belching flush from the restroom
    in the corner. I've been dozing--
    snooze interruptus, my lunchtime

    BLT's repeat. A slumped fat guy snores,
    his "Juror" tag rises, falls on his chest.
    Woman with scarf wrapped round her head

    might be the first casualty of jury service.
    Fellow awake jurors clack on their laptops.
    And I feel consoled: I've made this poem.
