Thirty Minutes Away
by Bruce McMillan

On a Monday evening
I get in my car, set my GPS,
and drive
thirty minutes away,
across the state border,
this night before
New Hampshire citizens
cast a vote.
 
I slide to the front
of the American Legion Hall
in Rochester
with my camera
and my note pad,
up close, no one between,
to see a candidate speak
and wonder,
 
"Am I possibly seeing,
am I listening to,
the first woman
President of US;
am I seeing
so close,
so personal,
history in the making?"
