THE APPREHENSIVE AVENGER

By Colin James

The gag order was clear enough

concise even,

not at all periphrasistic.

Instructions in bold lettering,

remove any identifying emblems

or representations of self.

Sagacious tips from The Weekly Reminder,

an information provider for cultists,

I inherited from the previous occupant.

After the sand has been swept

into neat little piles, only then

can the annual festivities begin,

so wear your plumage euphemistically.
