President Trump

Has declared Russia

To be a competitor


Framing the relationship

In business terms

While overlooking

The socio-cultural aspects

Of world power…


Just a business competitor

Not a geo-political foe

Or a military enemy


But simply,

And innocently

A competitor


Forgetting altogether

How President Putin

Has ways

Of making competitors







Ben White

Author of the books, Buddha Bastinado Blues and The Kill Gene, Ben White thought he was a poet, only to find out he is not a poet at all. He is a witness. What he writes is testimony.
