research

is always being protested

and funded

and protested again

so that after

a while

it becomes hard

to figure out

where the funding

begins

and the protest

stops

 

in much

the same way

you dig a hole

into the wet

crimson earth

 

and wonder

about all the rain

in the sky.

Ryan Quinn Flanagan is a Canadian-born author residing in Elliot Lake, Ontario, Canada with his other half and many mounds of snow.
