Alejandro Escudé







so you think now it’s better

the sky raining hostile people

who stole your confidence

what’s the probability a blue suit

standing in the rain in London

where you cannot be Shakespeare

ever notice sounds like Shakespeare

after three four plays and you sense

the man the way every character

explains their philosophy and events

cower toward them oh T.S. Eliot

saw it the sea its broken jaw

bleeding like fish and you can knock

all you want and he won’t let you in

the boy left alone a few minutes

to grab some milk his father said

the President lies then war comes

platitudinous the sick grow sicker

and the President speaks short

of intent if not for one word
