beneath the fold

Push it down
beneath the fold
and make it
go away
send it
to the inside
to the pages
where the local
stories go
and make it
go away
cut it
from the newsprint
line your bird cages
send it down the drain/
like so many
paper boats
and make it
go away
but instead
you swallowed it whole
and it sits like coal
burning from the inside
when you should
make it
go
away
