Two Poems By George Held

Two Poems By George Held Author bio: George Held keeps a low profile in NYC, though his poems, stories, and book reviews appear fairly often in print and online. What Difference? (After Robert Frost) Three roads in a wood converged and I took the one least trod. Now I wonder, has that made any fucking difference? While Waiting In the plastic customers’ lounge at my car dealer’s, the TV blares The Price Is Right while the sporty woman across from me reads a book by Donald Trump, Xmas lights blink “Welcome,” and refugees wait endlessly for permission to enter the promised land. 50

TWO POEMS by R. Riekki Author bio: Riekki has been a finalist for several screenplay competitions; an abbreviated list includes the Beverly Hills Screenplay Contest, Crimson Screen Horror Film Fest, Fantasmagorical Film Festival, The International Horror Hotel Film Festival, Marquee Lights Competition, Terror Film Festival, Cannes Screenplay Contest, and many more. The Pledge of Allegiant (Starring Shailene Woodley) I Pledge Allegiance to my rag and the Banana Republic for which we stand, one inflation, divisible, with Liberty University and Justice: Tween Clothing & Fashion for Girls for all. At a signal from the Dictator, the cleaners, in odored rank, hands on mops, deface the floor. Another signal is given: every cleaner gives the rag a paramilitary salute of right arm straightened and inclined upwards with the hand open and palm down. Standing thus, all repeat together, auf Deutsch, slowly, Trumpily, “I Pledge allegiance to my rag and the Banana Republic for which we stand, one inflation, divisible, with Liberty University and Justice: Tween Clothing & Fashion for Girls for all.” At the words “to my rag,” the right hand goes to the floor, gracefully, palm palming Palmolive with the rag and remains in this gesture ‘till the end of suffrage, whereupon all hands with Allstate immediately drop to their suicide. 51
