In the Oval Office

Wikipedia Poem, No. 858

thought now 
he might live now 
he might 
he just don’t look at this, jared really had power 
so the liberals raise up his hero’s journey right now 

he might now 
he just might now he   
might have thought now live right now 
though he might live for the liberals imprisoned 
him on his hero’s journey right now 

he might wow he might just live now 
he might flex on his hero’s journey right his soul 
just channeled it looks so good we don’t look that good
we don’t look good we wine drown and don’t look good
we don’t look at this, jared, really, they started appreciating this fine wine   

wine whine wine whine
he thought clever now 
he might be mighty now he might 
now just for a moment he might live now
for there’s a fine wine to be found how

it has complex notes to improve on 
because he don’t look at this, jared, really had power 
so, they started doing what they started doing
each fleck of shame is remarkably unremarkable 
triceps flexed against the entitled white wall

would art be a battleground?
forget college circle prompts
reasoning this: the old anti-censorship birth-game
awoke: the journalist outlouds dear trench of sky
scales and art forward has to be black
long for enjoyment during crisis of this: something
my mouth’s desire improving each generation
both males and art forward replace themselves
they believed me once entitled of containment
a generational cataclysm of cloud, because black, because long lines
enjambed of this: shame animates this poem
seven years wet no matter the danger of horah or humor
they please negativity stay with the poem, top-to-tit, before improving it

a prompt: read the work with boys with quick fingers — quick
trench of pharmaceutical glass for what’s parenthetical: i keep forgetting
pronouns ineffectively release negative desires
they have shifted the work, even among the paranoid, to shame anymore.
i have the power of numbers: the trick people are born woke;
the living prompt: read this poem and wept.

This pattern supports previous research 
which found the beneficial potential 
for humor to release negative mood scales
and replace them 
with a positive
sense of euphoria 
or elation.

Both males and females appear to benefit 
from the enjoyment 
of specific humor
          content
when angered.
