Postcards from Trump’s America by Sophie May Coates

The school yard gave you dirt

now real estate magnate channels welfare queen.


Keep your mouth shut or talk their language!

Broad decline to divisionary,

collapsed into scuffles of the anxious.


Better angels step outside,

the night crawlers lay on their back,

roly-poly inside the house.


Routine courtesy of men at my elbow,

painfully favourable 1950’s TV,

Scott and Steve Leader lead us to

trampled legal vertebrates

– I’m not just saying Mexicans.


And some,

I assume,

are good people.


Send to all.
