Workers’ Compensation Blues

.

Julie Buffaloe-Yoder

My head

is pounding

from fighting

for a month

.

with the boss

who told

Leon Jonson

he’d get fired

.

if he filed

a claim

for Workers’

Compensation.

.

My head

is pounding

from trying

to convince

Leon Jonson

.

who has

a sick kid

and another

in braces

and another

in glasses

.

and an arm

that’s black

and blue

and broke

.

that he’s

got rights,

too, damnit.

The above poem was originally published in Big Hammer #13 (edited by Dave Roskos of Iniquity Press).  You can find Big Hammer and many more excellent reads from Iniquity Press/Vendetta Books HERE.

.

I highly recommend Dave Rosko’s work.  You can read some of his poems HERE.  Powerful words.

.

And here’s another must read from Iniquity Press.  If you’ve been around for a while, you’ve heard me talk about Kell Robertson.  Some of my male friends tease me about my flaming arrow reference in that post.  Sometimes, I can’t help but act like a girl.

.

Anyway, I like to bring his work up as often as possible, in case any new folks are reading here.  Kell Robertson is one of my favorite poets.

.

Watch out for those flaming arrows, boys.

.

Thanks for dropping in.
