"PLEASE HOLD THROUGH THE SILENCE" (2020 Election Day)

PLEASE HOLD THROUGH THE SILENCE


                                                      - Marlan Warren, November 3, 2020, Los Angeles, CA


This poem jumped out of me after listening to an automated voice repeat "PLEASE HOLD THROUGH THE SILENCE" as I paid my utility bill via phone. I happily voted days ago at a Los Angeles Vote Center at the Hollywood Hotel where I found cheerful masked young female volunteers and only one person ahead of me, as we handed in our mail-in ballots. Great to hear the satisfying whir of the machine as my ballot went through. The next day I received confirmation from Ballot Trax that my ballot was received and will be counted.
