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

purity of ducklings floating east
then north toward an apple tree

“A word that implies mock angel-headed. A swollen and cancerous knightly court.” marginalia from an early draft of Sexualizing Picasso on the Cross, 2016

when in
predation

when i say
the nest can be
nasty last

summer when the was
was stronger death 
found a carcass

dramatic resource
than just barely
nourishment some emotional 

strength turns off 
words maintain
can be nasty can be

lastly they read lots 
dark emails from 
family starves on a public stage

they will do 
       some emotion

it is 
       tangled over

anxiety & chick
       it's about family
