Tonight's Poet Corner: Dodging It

Dodging It
by Belinda Roddie

I packed my bags up, black and blue
and bruised from all the fighting. I
apologized for leaving you, then
fled the scene like lightning. I was
woefully unprepared - I made it
all about me. I ran away 'cause
I was scared, and America burned
without me.
