Rick Davis




the president & his people



they are foxes – jumping

to an agenda that is a

mean-spirited cartoon.


ambush.  false witness.  poor translation.

cancerous anomalies.


donald harms.  he hurts others.

his anger swallows the moon.

he smiles:


his skin is caked with

irritating half-dissolved salt

that falls from a rotting

volcanic face.


still, he smiles.


but, fortunately, many of us see

beyond his polluted dusk and fly,



toward open lavender sky.
