The devil __ the details

 

.

.

  Who notices prepositions
  unless they dangle

  like earrings
  begging the spotlight.

  They act
  like auditioning extras

  or photo-bombers.

.

.

.

   Of the people, for the people, by the people,

   what does that even mean
   when we, the people
   are simply people

   trying out humanity.

.

.

   My nephew goes blah blah blah,
   which is cute and could
   mean anything when
   spoken randomly
   __ an 18-month old,

   like prepositions
   __ the people:

    __ God, we trust.
