Trump’s missed opportunity

The spiritual-prescient face, the always welcome common benevolent face
Riotous laughing bacchanals filld with joy!
Upper-arm, armpit, elbow-socket, lower-arm, arm-sinews, arm-bones
My land is to me
Proud and passionate citymettlesome, mad, extravagant city!
Ah you foes that in conflict …

Hillary’s border crisis

Hear the loud echoes of my songs thereread the hints come at last
I am more resolute because all have denied me than I could ever have
Lies are perfect returns
Long has the globe been rolling round
And …

L.A. school district

Land tolerating all, accepting all, not for the good alone, all good
And if those who defile the living are as bad as they who defile the dead?

Obama’s proliferation problem

Blow! blow! blow!
And am around, tenacious, acquisitive, tireless, and cannot be shaken away

Only what proves itself to every man and woman is so
Undulate round the world, serenely arriving, arriving
Rose again, half sitting, smiled, gave in silence his extended hand
May-be …

Victory, union, faith, identity, time
I pass to the lumber forests of the North, and again to the Southern
Certainties suitable to me

Meet Kate Brown

Most spiritual poems
Eaten by the chaste husband, content after his days work
Ever the heroes on water or on land, by ones or twos appearing
To be this incredible God I am!
Kansians, Missourians, Oregonese joys!
A Paumanok …

A Pelosi bailout?

A motley procession with many a fleck of foam and many fragments
Partly cover them, beyond these I pass,
Lo, the most excellent sun so calm and haughty
Out of the feudal wrecks and heapd-up skeletons of kings
Starting …

Fallout from Ferguson

Full of Life Now
And the sights of the open landscape and the high-spread shy are fitting
Late of a winter night, and I unremarkd seated in a corner
O hymen! O hymenee! why do you tantalize me thus? …

Braving Ebola

Behold through you as bad as the rest
Responding their manners, speech, dress, friendships, the gait they
A Paumanok Picture

Immodestly sliding the fellow-senses away
Nighest neighborwoman in mother, sister, wife

Gray-blue …
