Jennifer Lagier- Poem & Photo




We’re in Trouble But We Don’t Know What to Do

Camille tips the toothless musician
at the entrance to Fisherman’s Wharf,
stuffs a dollar into his stovepipe hat.
Lingers to compliment his singing.
Remains to join his political rant.

It’s Election Day, folks casting votes
for crooked, crazy, or worse.
She considers it a rigged shell game,
winning pea secretly pocketed
before marks make their choice.

Camille meanders sanctuary trail,
watches harbor seals snooze.
Anchored sailboats cast
crooked reflections
against taut, silver bay.


Jennifer Lagier is a reclusive cynic who resides beside the Pacific Ocean with three spoiled dogs and has befriended a small gopher snake.
