Field Work

Lounging after laundry
Family over the hill
My Sunday steeped in green
Tea & The New York Times
Thinking first about the Trumpster
And his vile, fully branded take
On the presidency
Then spotting a story
On Sally Field at sixty-nine

An image arises of the afternoon
She browsed the bins
At this record store in Studio City
Where once I worked

Must have been 1974 or 1975
Most likely before Doubtfire
But after The Flying Nun

Considering the election
Norma Rae offers

An Absence of Malice
We could all use

To sift through the smoke and snake oil
