Scott Abels


New City
 
A Cardinal
amid scandal

is said to leave.
We shave

funny 
places.

The City
Council

has a ban
on sports

metaphors
for sexual

aggression.
The people drove

Monsanto out
because

they didn’t help.
Tree number

eight fifty four
has a fungus.

Let’s loop
our rope

over
a natural crotch.

Don’t be 
lonely

in a 
new city.


The recent work of Scott Abels can be found (or is forthcoming) in Forklift Ohio, H_ngm_n, Sink Review, Juked, DIAGRAM, Lo-Ball, and others. He currently lives and teaches in Honolulu, where he edits the online poetry journal Country Music (countrymusicpoetry.org).
